Hmm..  An 8-core machine, 2 x QuadCore (Intel Xeon E5472), 16GB,
4x750GB SATA, with a Supermicro X7DWN+ - EATX - Intel 5400
ChipsetSupermicro X7DWN+ - EATX - Intel 5400 Chipset Mobo is about
$5k.   That could certainly run a bunch of VMs.   I just don't
know if I could run ESXi or if I'd need to run Fedora + vmware-server.
