well, considering that I really don't have a server (or even a desktop
system) around that I can adequately set up and test, I'm thinking that
this might be a good time to strong arm the boss and buy a new server
that actually has hardware support for virtualization.

Thus I am thinking that I could get a rack server with sufficient hard
drive space, 4 GB RAM and a couple of Xeon processors, wait until
CentOS-5.1 and set up so that I could have LTSP & alfresco running under
xen...this makes sense to me, do this make sense to you?
