    Question HyperVM kernel question.

    Hello, I currently have a dedicated server setup with multiple HyperVM Xen containers that I use to seperate my sites and for other various tasks. I know very little about kernels so I need some assistance in executing what I'm trying to accomplish (I hope it's possible, I was told it is).

    I am running CentOS 5.3 x86_64 with a 64 bit kernel on the main node and all of the individual Xen containers are running pretty much the same setup (CentOS 5.3 x84_64).

    I tried to install a CentOS 5.3 i386 image on a test container but I was having a lot of issues (I changed the yum configuration to get the i386 packages instead of the x86_64 but I still could not get cPanel to install and work properly).

    I was told and read that Xen containers run on top of their own kernels so it is possible for me to setup a 32bit kernel for each container correct? I want to run CentOS 5.3 i386 on all of my containers, is that possible to do when the hardware node is running 64bit?

    It appears that it is possible but you will need to do some research on it.
