Default Windows as virtual guest on Linux server?

Hi all

Has anyone attempted to install Windows 2003 as a guest OS on an existing Linux server yet? In this case the Linux server runs CentOS 5.1 64bit, and I can increase the RAM & upgrade the CPU if needed.

I'm currently looking at OpenVZ & Xen for virtulisation, so if possible, I'd like to run it on one of the free virtulization platforms.

OpenVZ is only for Linux vms; if you want to install Windows in a Xen vm, then your processor must support hardware virtualization (AMD: Pacifica; Intel: VT).
