} the problem in the case of a Xen domU is that there's no good source
} of entropy. On native systems we use the hard disk as a source
} of entropoy; but on a domU it's disabled because others domU could interfere
} with it.
} rndctl should show xennets as a possible source of entropy, but it has
} to be enabled manually.

How would I enable it manually?
