    I want to get hardware acceleration in my guest os i.e. windows.. I am trying hard to figure out how to get started with xen . I can use terminal ,not fully though..installed all the available packages from synaptic package manager related to xen. But I am stuck here....Can not get xen up and running.Somebody please help to get along with this. Any step by step instruction or reference to a proper guide would be really appreciated. =D>

    I dont have much experience with Xen, but you may find virtualbox easier to use for your purposes (I know I do). You can find it in the software center or synaptic.
    A major thing about all virtualization software that I have tried is that you may not find it quite adequate for graphic intense windows apps and games. The biggest reason many of us dual boot.

    Thanks for your reply. I used virtual box in my windows system. But was unable to enable 3d acceleration,which is necessary for many application. whenever i tried to run dxdiag it just stopped working. I found on the net that other guys having linux too have same problem. Anyway I want give a try to virtualize with xen. ANY HELPFUL INFO WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.
