Xen would have been ideal if I could have gotten it to actually work. No offense to Linux fanboys but I don't have time to piece together bits and pieces from 15 different obsolete tutorials and manuals to find some combination of steps that actually produces a working Xen install.

OpenSuse has a rather nice GUI manager to set them up for you.

I'm not a Linux fanboy though, so no offence taken smile.gif

OpenSuse? I'll have to take a look. Hopefully it actually supports PCI Passthrough. I was trying to use CentOS 6.4 and whenever I'd start setting up PCI Passthrough I'd get an error saying Xen didn't support it. I assume it was an old version or an odd build of some kind?

Okay the specific error I was getting was that XenD does not support managed PCI devices for PCI passthrough. I don't know if that applies to other distros. It seems the solution was to use something called xl instead of XenD but I couldn't find any useful guides on that, plus it was all command-line and text-file driven while XenD has that really nice Virtual Machine Manager GUI.

CentOS might not ship with the right Xen bits in the kernel. When you install Suse, you should be given an option about whether you're running it as a hypervisor or desktop (SLES - Suse Enterprise Linux - gives you that option so I'm hoping OpenSuse does too)
