Re: Is XEN kernel an answer to VMWare crash?

I've tried to compile VMWare to FC4 in kernel 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 but it

is the only way get it back in to life and VMWare module must be skip
manually on boot up (and then of course remove from starting service
list).

Now I've read little about XEN kernels and did not get the point of it.
I figure out that XEN is some kind of Virtual Machine kernel itself (I
mean, I can boot in other OS within using Linux - or something like
that). Or am I right at all?

I was thinking would the XEN kernel be the answer to VMWare crash?

Please help me on this...

VMWare and XEN are represent different approaches.  They are not
interchangeable. Without hardware support "announced" by AMD and Intel, XEN does not handle certain OS's that can be used with VMWare.
