release notes re-written for core 6

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  = Virtualization =
  
- Virtualization in Fedora Core is based on Xen. Xen 3.0.2. It is integrated within the Fedora Core [[GetVal(DocsDict,BeatsVer)]] installer. Refer to [http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/Xen] for more information about Xen.
+ Virtualization in Fedora Core is based on Xen. Xen 3.0.2. It is integrated within the Fedora Core 6 installer. Refer to [http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/Xen] for more information about Xen.
  
  == Types of Virtualization ==
  
- Under Fedora Core [[GetVal(DocsDict,BeatsVer)]] using Xen 3.0.2, both paravirtualization and full virtualization can be implemented. Full virtualization requires a VT-capable processor. Paravirtualization does not require special hardware, but does require the guest OS to be modified. To learn more about how to configure and use Xen, see [http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstartFC6].

- The Fedora Core [[GetVal(DocsDict,BeatsVer)]] development team has tested Xen with Fedora Core [[GetVal(DocsDict,BeatsVer)]] and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Beta1 guests. Other guests have not been tested. However, with paravirtualization users can expect reasonable success running any Linux guest OS that was built for Xen 3.0.2. With full virtualization (using VT hardware), users can expect reasonable success with a larger variety of operating systems, including some proprietary operating systems.

  == Changes to the Xen Packages ==
  
- In Fedora Core [[GetVal(DocsDict,BeatsVer)]] a single kernel supports both the host and the guest operating systems. In previous versions, there was one kernel for the host or hypervisor (kernel-xenU), and a separate kernel for the guests (kernel-xen0). In Fedora Core [[GetVal(DocsDict,BeatsVer)]] the `kernel-xen` package is the only kernel needed.

- Introducing the `virt-manager` package.  Fedora Core [[GetVal(DocsDict,BeatsVer)] features `virt-manager`, a GUI application for installing and managing virtual machines. Paravirtualized guests now support a graphical framebuffer. This means that the X window environment of the guest operating system can be accessed directly from `virt-manager`. In addition,  `virt-manager` supports the graphical installer without the need to use VNC.
