    281281=== Compute node Xen installation === 
    282 Suppose we used rinstall to install some basic OS on a compute node, to make a Xen hypervisor, we need to make some modifications (making a Hypervisor image that can be used by rinstall is covered later). Do: 
    283 {{{ 
    284 [root@n01 ~]# yum install kernel-xen xen uucp 
    285 }}} 
     282Basically I am following the instruction in [http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/xcat/index.php?title=XCAT_Xen]. Note that compute nodes are required to have CPU VT support (unlike Eucalyptus).  
     283 1. Suppose we used rinstall to install some basic OS on a compute node, to make a Xen hypervisor, we need to make some modifications (making a Hypervisor image that can be used by rinstall is covered later). Do: 
     284 {{{ 
     285 [root@n01 ~]# yum install kernel-xen xen uucp 
     286 }}} 
     287 1. Create VM disk file for each VM: 
     288 {{{ 
     289 #mkdir /vms 
     290 #dd if=/dev/zero of=/vms/vm_disk bs=1M count=1 seek=4095 
     291 }}} 
     292 1. Modify /boot/grub/menu.1st to boot Xen kernel by default (if your compute node OS uses grub1). 
     293 1. Reboot the compute node. 
     294 
     295=== Create Xen Guest ===
