Config Notes
1) The pci:use_crs kernel boot parameter is required.
2) SLES-10-SP3 (x86_64): System was tested with rev .58.1 update kernel due to a kernel oops which may occur when initializing the network devices. This update is available from support.novell.com or standard online update methods. The drivers used are part of this update.
3) Since the Xen kernel only supports 64 processors, the system BIOS was configured to only enable 64 of the 96 processors.
4) The following Xen hypervisor boot parameters are required: dom0_mem=1024M xenheap_megabytes=64
