    Hello guys!

    Today I have noticed that I was using a kernel 2.6.18 el5xen, but my server is dedicated (not virtualized).

    My question is if my server is dedicated, must I use a normal kernel (not xen)?

    Thanks!

    As far as Im aware, the "xen" on the end of the kernel simply implies it can be run under xen, not that it *must*.
    While it may add a *tiny* bit of overhead to the kernel, its nothing to worry about :)
