Xen: Full Virt Solaris 10

I am astounded at the ease with which I could create a Solaris 10 virtual machine under Fedora 7. The virt-manager recognized the Solaris 10 CDs and launched the image without error or complaint. It also claimed support for Solaris 9, as well as some BSD beasties (who I care not about.)

Of course the Solaris install was still completely borked. I was able to get the installer to display a good 800x600 test pattern by selecting the XF86 VESA compliant driver, but the installer still insisted upon running in the text mode. Of course, we know what that means-- We're going to have trouble with CD 2.
