Yep, but its better than closed source binaries.

VMWARE works very well, there have been a couple of comparisons on the
intarweb.. check it out. I believe that vmware was top of the list for
speed. The binary qemu came a close second AFAIR.

Oi, RHEL rocks. Its my choice on my HAN server, and it has never let me
down. I do not use the official kernel RPM's though, as they lack support
of XFS. Uname still reports the correct supported kernel revision though
-> recompile of the SRPM's dies the trick, and then I discovered that some
kind soul on the centos4 list had already pre-compiled everything.
Now rhn updates the system, and centos the kernel. Works for me.
I see that I may have to kick your ass at paintball. :-0
