How to install Xen on RHEL6, Scientific Linux 6, CentOS 6

As any user of an EL6 distro would know, the basis of the EL6 packages are RHEL6. Sadly, Redhat dropped support for Xen in v6 – preferring KVM as their corporate solution. Personally, I don’t think this was the correct decision. This mini-howto will give the basics of setting up the Xen Dom0. From there, any Xen tutorial will cover the basics (and some more advanced) functionality of Xen guests (both Windows and Linux).

I run a mailing list on lists.wireless.org.au which is available for peer support and suggestions. I will also post announcements to this list on new builds and testing as new developments emerge.

NOTE: Due to the number of support requests I get sent, I am unable to give individual responses to any issues. I suggest using the mailing list for support. I will make an effort to monitor and assist people using the list.
