I want to setup a Linux box to serve as a Host for a few Virtual Machines. here is the deal:i do not want to have these VM running as the main production machines but as fall backs in case of disaster to the real machinesI want to take an "image" (terminology?) of an existing in production Win2008Server and have it be a guest on the Linux boxit would be nice if I could do the same with an NT4 Server.it would be nice if I could do the same with a RH9 (note - not Enterprise, the real 9 from last century)Is there a real life solution out there? Free would of course be nice (actually the Linux Hosting requirement is a must-have) but if I need to spend a few hundred dollars on software , that might be doable.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis
