Sounds good. After I clicked "send", I reread your post and realized
that you didn't want xen (which, I believe, is depreciated). VMWare
Server seems to be very popular here. A good idea to install only what
you need, but, it's usually safer installing on Linux than installing
something on M$ Windoze, which can really screw up the box. BTW, check
the "Services" that are running on your box and turn off anything you
don't need running. I'm always puzzled by services upstream has
started, many of them, I don't want or need.
