    2.12 -About the Xen Virtual Machine Monitor
    2.13 -=====================================
    2.14 +What is Xen?
    2.15 +============
    2.16  
    2.17  Xen is a Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM) originally developed by the
    2.18  Systems Research Group of the University of Cambridge Computer
    2.19  Laboratory, as part of the UK-EPSRC funded XenoServers project.
    2.20 +Xen is freely-distributable Open Source software, released under the
    2.21 +GNU GPL.
    2.22  
    2.23  The 2.0 release offers excellent performance, hardware support and
    2.24  enterprise-grade features such as live migration. Linux 2.6, 2.4 and
    2.25  NetBSD 2.0 are already available for Xen, with more operating system
    2.26  ports on the way.
    2.27  
    2.28 -Xen is freely-distributable Open Source software, released under the
    2.29 -GNU GPL.
    2.30 +This file contains some quick-start instructions to install Xen on
    2.31 +your system. For full documentation, see the Xen User Manual. If this
    2.32 +is a pre-built release then you can find the manual at:
    2.33 + dist/install/usr/share/doc/xen/pdf/user.pdf
    2.34 +If you have a source release, then 'make -C docs' will build the
    2.35 +manual at docs/pdf/user.pdf.
    2.36 +
    2.37 +Quick-Start Guide - Pre-Built Binary Release
    2.38 +============================================
    2.39 +
    2.40 +[NB. Unless noted otherwise, all the following steps should be
    2.41 +performed with root privileges.]
    2.42 +
    2.43 +1. Install the binary distribution onto your filesystem:
    2.44 +    # sh ./install.sh
    2.45 +   Amongst other things, this will install Xen and XenLinux kernel
    2.46 +   files in /boot, kernel modules and Python packages in /lib, and
    2.47 +   various control tools in standard 'bin' directories.
    2.48  
    2.49 -For full documentation, see the Xen User Manual in docs/pdf/user.pdf
    2.50 -(after running make -C docs) or the Documentation page on the Xen
    2.51 -website.
    2.52 +2. Configure your bootloader to boot Xen and an initial Linux virtual
    2.53 +   machine. Note that Xen currently only works with GRUB: less common
    2.54 +   alternatives such as LILO are *not* supported. You can most likely
    2.55 +   find your GRUB menu file at /boot/grub/menu.lst: edit this file to
    2.56 +   include an entry like the following:
    2.57 +    # title Xen 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6.9
    2.58 +    #   kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=<mem-kb> console=vga
    2.59 +    #   module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-xen0 root=<root-dev> ro console=tty0
    2.60 +   For <mem-kb> you should specify the amount of memory, in kilobytes,
    2.61 +   to allocate for use by your initial XenLinux virtual machine. Note
    2.62 +   that Xen itself reserves about 32MB memory for internal use, which
    2.63 +   is not available for allocation to virtual machines.
    2.64 +   For <root-dev>, specify your usual root partition (e.g., /dev/hda1).
    2.65 +
    2.66 +3. Reboot your system and select the "Xen 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6.9" menu
    2.67 +   option. After booting Xen, XenLinux will start and your
    2.68 +   initialisation scripts should execute in the usual way.
    2.69 +
    2.70 +Quick-Start Guide - Source Release
    2.71 +==================================
    2.72 +
    2.73 +First, there are a number of prerequisites for building a Xen source
    2.74 +release. Make sure you have all the following installed, either by
    2.75 +visiting the project webpage or installing a pre-built package
    2.76 +provided by your Linux distributor:
    2.77 +    * GCC (preferably v3.2.x or v3.3.x; older versions are unsupported) 
    2.78 +    * GNU Make
    2.79 +    * GNU Binutils
    2.80 +    * Development install of libcurl (e.g., libcurl-dev)
    2.81 +    * Development install of zlib (e.g., zlib-dev)
    2.82 +    * Development install of Python v2.2 or later (e.g., python-dev)
    2.83 +
    2.84 +[NB. Unless noted otherwise, all the following steps should be
    2.85 +performed with root privileges.]
