I am currently researching how Xen works.  I am finding the top-level 
information a bit lacking in low-level information.

I came across the website with all the objects for Xen, however, I have 
yet to find implementation or developer information, so I still have 
some digging to do, obviously.

I have downloaded the pdf information, however, I have not gotten far 
enough into the docs to figure out what is actually needed to have Xen 
function as it should on FreeBSD.

I am also researching the different types or products to figure out what 
should be my target for the most investigation.

I am still premature in my research of this platform, so I am still 
trying to figure out what is done by the Xen implementation that is not 
within the indigenous OS. (I assume that it encapsulates environments as 
would be needed for true virtual private services.)

Thanks for the dialogue, I am still very much premature in my research 
of this "virtualization appliance" project that I thought up for my 
environment, and it is nice to see some feedback.
