Red Hat Enterprise Version 4 Update 5 added the support for Xen guest for
x86_64 platform.


Can someone please check the above verbage is appropriated for RHEL4.5 
update release notes or not?

many thanks.

Comment 5 Chris Lalancette 2007-01-15 15:55:38 UTC
The above Release Note probably wants to be a little more specific...something like:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version 4 Update 5 added support for paravirtualized
Xen guests for the x86_64 platform.
