Upgrade from FC6->FC8 adds XEN which breaks VMWare
 
VMware player and workstation were installed in the FC6 install. When the FC8 upgrade was performed, xen was added. When now trying the VMWare I'm told I must disable xen first.

How can I do this?
Should I be doing it? Can I run virtual XP machines under xen the same way I have been doing with vmware? Thanks.

Boot to the non-xen kernel (it would be a good idea to make this the default choice).

VMware will work with a xen kernel but why anyone would use a virtual OS in a virtual OS is beyond me.

Yes it is possible to run Windows XP as a xen virtual system. Use google to find how to on this as i have not done so myself
