We will assume you have a stock Fedora Core 6 installed and that you are ready to convert it to a Xen. Please make sure you can boot into it without any problems or errors. You can either run Xwindow or work from the console. If you have not installed Fedora Core before and need help with its configuration, the following links could be useful:
