so i'm back on trying to get my new server online.
since you want to run windows as a vm, you can only use xen if your cpu supports intel vt or amd-v.
in fact, all the different virtualization programs that support intel vt or amd-v run better if you have it.
according to this article ( http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=8880 ), you can start virtualbox without a gui.
i tried virtualbox awhile back on my mac, but there was a limitation where the VMs can't have bridge network interfaces. this might have been unique to the mac version though.

7.4.1 VBoxHeadless, the VRDP-only server
thanks. ya. i got that doc and saw it, but if you notice they talk about "managing/creating vms once vb is already installed". but part of the install process, you can put things like ./configure --disable-qt and stuff, but on compile it still does all of these gui checks regardless and faults because the dependencies aren't there. the whole configure script isn't written comprehensively yet.
i don't think you can use the OSE if you want to run headless, the RDP server is closed-source.
well... i saw that when i was comparing versions, but i figured since i have a host os, i could connect to that then manage it from there. or install an rdp server that's available on my own. but i'm on the verge of just throwing away the ose and going to the rpm instead. i'm pretty set on running VB though as opposed to vmware or something else.
I'm not much help. I saw VirtualBox a few weeks ago and was thinking of trying Windows on Mac OS X (or was it the other way around). It was definitely an interesting product. But I just don't have any time to mess around with it.
