I'll look into using a BSD variant for Xen but i am not as familiar with
it as I am with *nix variants. In the last couple of days I have been
warming up to KVM as it seems to have better support with Ubuntu and
Fedora (the two distro's that I am the most familiar) Also, what would
be the advantage of keeping my router on a separate box?
