User Mode Linux

Anyone installed User Mode Linux?

I just read about it, and I was thinking of giving it a shot.

Can someone give me stories, hints, tricks, etc?

UML is being effectively replaced by Xen. It's included with Fedora Core, and has a number of benefits over UML:

- Better performance, through paravirtualization
- Hardware CPU support

The support added by both Intel and AMD (Vanderpool and Pacifica, respectively)will allow unmodified operating systems, like Windows or OSX-x86, to run in Xen virtual machines.
