Nevada build 85 id the first SNV build implementing Xen 3.1.2 bits. It's well known that straight forward attempt to install SNV85 DomU at Xen 3.2 Linux Dom0 immediatelly crashes due to broken by Xen 3.2 backward compatibility.

Recently Jurgen Keil suggested workaround for this issue providing owners of build 85 option to load SNV85 DomU and patch DomU's kernel , turning it permanently into running shape at Xen 3.2 Linux Dom0 (64-bit). Note , that Sun patch is scheduled for build 87 and might take 3-4 weeks waiting for ISO image availibilty at Jurgen wrote that at mean time he didn't have Xen 3.2 Linux Dom0 (64-bit) to perform testing. That is what , actually, was done by me for CentOS 5.1 and Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop. Installations differs due to CentOS 5.1 doesn't allow to use "pygrub" and requires coping of patched kernel from DomU to Dom0. Brief description for both procedures follows bellow.
