the patch gives a 404, but I installed dev86, and acpica (Based upon
the cblfs book)

Installed via the following:

make MAKEFLAGS="-j 1" xen tools &&
make install-xen install-tools

(Decided to keep things simple, BTW, is -j1 the default for make?  and
is there a problem with the xorg check?).  I have a 32bit glibc
userspace, although no clue what dependencies 32bit had.

I wonder if some of the kernel options have changed since 3.0/3.1
though,  I was not finding a few of them easy to find

now to figure out how to actually "use" xen.  In a few weeks, I will
be managing xen based virtual machines. (yes Bruce, the shoe is on the
other foot now).  Seems a bit more "integrated" then qemu is.
