16. Virtualization

Virtualization in Fedora Core is based on Xen 3.0.2, and is integrated within the Fedora Core 6 installer. Refer to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/Xen for more information about Xen.

16.1. Types of Virtualization

Under Fedora Core 6 using Xen 3.0.2, both paravirtualization and full virtualization can be implemented. Full virtualization requires a VT-capable processor. Paravirtualization does not require special hardware, but does require the guest OS to be modified. To learn more about how to configure and use Xen, refer to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstartFC6.
