Dear treotan:

Fedora has built in Xen support and thus, patched Xen kernels available. I am not too sure about Ubuntu in terms of installs but what you want shouldn't be a 'big deal' - make sure you have downloaded vnc viewer, if you don't already have it and then try virt-install (...if it is running on Ubuntu which it probably is!) If you don't have it you can get it at:

I strongly recommend using the latest version!

It will want to have you get Fedora off the 'net or over a network it does not accept disk based installs, right now.

So...go to:…

...where the "..." is surf their pages to fill in the rest of the string to get the latest version Fedora 8.

Follow the interactive commands for virt-install and it will manage everything!
