Thanks for that. Obviously, I am not entirely informed with respect to ESXi. I've used VMWare Server on Linux and MS Windows (XP, 2003) and, while it worked, I wasn't satisfied with the performance for a production environment. Due to my limited budget, I've been 'scared off' from setting up a ESXi testing environment, though it is still 'on my list of things to do'.
