Thanks for the tips all, I'm going to look around town and find a home for this server..... hopefully at at reasonable price.
If it comes to $$ is there anyone willing to chip in and have a slice of this server?
Johnathan I've got you down as a maybe........

I happen to have lying around a dual 3.6G Pentium Xeon box with 4GB of RAM and plenty of hardware RAID1 Storage wrapped up in a shiny 1U Server with 4 gig NICs. I did a minimal Debian install last night and installed the latest 3.1 Xen, it's a screamer.

How about NetBSD domUs too?
(though you kinda have too much RAM for that)
Even in a GNU/Linux domU case, I'd be interested if the price is
You might look at vps-choice.tld (yeah, I'm too lazy to jfgi)
for pricing stuffs.

That's so big I'd want it across multiple domUs.
I have anywhere from 48MiB to 256MiB for my domUs
here at home. Storage ranges from about 1GiB to 24GiB.
