  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'.
