We are not going to get that elaborate in this setup.  We need a solution 
that is cheap, and allows us to run 2 Linux instances and 2 FreeBSD 
instances on a single, 64 bit multi processor box.

We would like something simple, reliable, and preferably cheap if not 
free.  This will most likely be a "launch it and forget it" setup, where 
we'll set the four or five instances up, OS each instance, and launch it 
as a production box.  Once that's up and running, we probably won't touch 
them again for a while, and there's no need to automate or anything like 

So with that in mind - simplicity and reliability - can anyone recommend a 
solution that fits these needs?  (Cheap and supports both OS's).

We will have Console access to the box if that helps.
