I feel you there with the time thing. right now I am gonna stick with
researching this out a bit more and probably begin implementing after my
A+ and Network+ certs in December. As I noted before my main goal is to
learn server virtualization so as to make myself more marketable for the
job market. I figure that getting my mythbox virtualized is going to be
the real challenge. My ultimate goal is to take 6 of my boxes (2
servers, 1 Mythbox, 2 thin clients and 1 router) all on one box.
As for my hardware I have a dell PE840 with a dualcore xeon and a perc
5i but I am not sure that it is the best machine for the mythbox Xeon's
are crap when it comes to video and graphics and the board has no PCI-e
slots for the video card. so I may end up using my quad core. Like I
said I still have a bunch of research to do before I start tearing down
and reconfiguring my equipment.
