I've been searching online for the past few weeks and I found that VMware implements an invalid x86 instruction to return info about itself and VirtualPC uses a magic number / I/O port (with an IN...

    I will be setting up my new system in a couple of weeks. I'll be running CentOS 5 on a quad core AMD Opteron. I'm going to run Windows XP as a guest OS, and possibly 1 or more Linux distros. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am currently considering Xen or Virtualbox, leaning towards Xen.
