I need to read up on that one not sure I understand what its all about. This 
time around the manual that came with the boxed version I have is extremely 
poor theres no Administration manual so its aimed at the general user and 
just gives a 'very' brief overview of packages. having said that the 
installation section is V. good so I guess they take the view once its up and 
running you're on your own.

The Xen installation is not even mentioned in the manual.

You need to be careful with additional repository's (not YOU 
Yast-Online-Update) such as packman & extras this was my downfall I'd set my 
system to update everything to the latest release from the software 
management section which had been fine for months and months but like all 
updates you're at the mercy of the site maintainer if something bad slips in 
you have no defence.
