virtualization in fc5, need help.

I need to run a windows virtual host on my system. Ive read that the new xen3 that is integrated into fc5 might be capable of running a windows host but I can't find any instruction on how to do so. I first tried installing Vmware workstation but when i ran vmware-config.pl the setup failed. If its possible to run a windows host with xen then i'd like to do that, but i have zero experience with zen. so far all ive done is yum install kernel-xen0 but i'm afraid that if I use the xen kernel I will kill my nvidia drivers?

I'm pretty sure that I read that the Windows that they got working under Xen was possible only by using the new instruction set for virtualization that was in certain Intel procs, and they are working on also supporting AMD's virtualization. Without those special processors, it's impossible to run Windows without kernal changes (which MS probably won't go, and hasn't gone, for)

oh. so chances are I don't have the right intel proc. I wonder which one it works with? if xen is a no go, any ideas on how to get vmware installed. It's not finding my kernel header files...

ive installed it before (rpm version) on FC4 and SUSE 10.0 with absolutely no problems. One FC5 the rpm installed fine, but when i ran vmware-config.pl it said that there is not any kernel header files. ive got kernel-smp-devel installed. thats my question. I know its usually pretty easy, thanks for telling me something I already know.

I'm wondering if i should install the tar.gz archive instead of the rpm.
