The hosts are Centos 5.2 x86_64 systems. The guests will initially be 
Debian Sarge i386 systems using HVM virtualization (legacy systems, don't 
ask) but hopefully these will be replaced eventually by Centos guests too.
What exactly determines whether the guests will be running slow or not and 
how "slow" are we talking about?
