The popular Xen virtualization system lets you install different operating systems on the same hardware to leverage computational power efficiently.
In this article, we describe how to get started with Xen in Debian Etch, and you will learn about starting the guest and host systems and even how to set up a Windows guest on a Linux host. Some of the details might differ for other distros, but the steps are similar.
