I meant 'dovetailing with', not 'into', oops.  Their webpage speaks
of porting the guest OS to utilize Xen:


  "This is achieved by requiring OSs to be specifically ported to run on
  Xen, rather than allowing unmodified OS images to be used."

I had assumed, perhaps incorrectly, that Xen was like VMWare, in
that it required a host OS to live on, and then one or more Xenified
guest OSes could run under Xen.

I haven't actually read their site to any depth, so I have no idea
who far off I might be...
