  == Types of Virtualization ==
  
- Under Fedora Core 6 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].

+ == Guest Operating Systems ==
  
- The Fedora Core 6 development team has tested Xen with Fedora Core 6 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 6 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 6 the `kernel-xen` package is the only kernel needed.

+ Fedora Core 6 introduces `virt-manager`, a GUI application for installing and managing virtual machines. Features of `virt-manager` include:
  
-  * Integrated graphical framebuffer. Both the GUI installer and the guest operating systems graphical environment can be accessed from `virt-manager` without the need for VNC.
+  * Integrated graphical framebuffer. Both the GUI installer and the guest operating system's graphical environment can be accessed from `virt-manager` without the need for VNC.
  
   * An embedded serial console viewer. The console can now be accessed from `virt-manager` without opening a separate terminal and using `xm console`.
  
   * CPU and memory management. The vCPUs and memory of active guest operating systems can be adjusted on the fly.
  
-  * Extended  RFB protocol handler. IF the guest operating system changes screen resolution, the `virt-manager` graphical console will adjust its size accordingly.

  In Fedora Core 6 there are two methods to install a guest OS: via the command line using the `xenguest-install` program, or via the GUI application `virt-manager`.
