Has anyone set up LINUXMCE as a VM with ZEN or KVM?

yes

hari, did you use ZEN or KVM?

Try http://www.virtualbox.org as we have had success installing into that VM. I would suggest at least 2Gig of RAM and a fast processor  though.

All the best

I'm sure you are talking about XEN. But as you can't even spell it I'd recommend KVM :-)

As Andrew already said, it also runs nice in vbox.

sorry, no offense :-) But depending on the distribution, KVM is probably a bit easier to install/configure..

I'm using KVM now on a rather beefy OpenSUSE system. Since I'm still fiddling with NAS backup and UPS scripts, I cannot tell you what works and what doesn't, but if you're going for KVM, you should consider using non-cirrus video card since it failed on the AV Wizard after reboot (X couldn't find a monitor), and it didn't help changing it after install (for some reason). So choose VGA on the vm setup. I'm still searching for ways to use the nVidia card on the virtual guest.
Also, I had to add the 2nd network card to the guest OS AFTER install..

I'm a long time Virtualbox user, and so far I am really impressed with KVM both in terms of performance and ease-of-use. Please check out the nice OpenSUSE docs: http://doc.opensuse.org/documentation/html/openSUSE/opensuse-kvm/

The Yast control panel in OpenSUSE makes it a whole lot easier and polished:)

atm I am running KVM (ubuntu 1204b) on a HP N40L which is low on power. It's running my old 8.10 production vm, TVHeadEnd for recordings, a WinXP machine and 1004. Although the latest still has some problems.
