  Just wondering if you achieved "Satisfaction" with your request, or
if you DIY'd or got someone to do the work.
  If not, I'm available, have a (distant) background in Unix system
security and am familiar with virtual  machine concepts.
  I've only ever used Xen as a virtual-host client, but it's always
attracted me as a server-level hypervisor and it wouldn't be hard to
get filled-in on the details.
  So if you still need someone and you think I might fit the bill,
please email me or call me on (0414) 893 105.
