While not Drupal relevant perse, I think that many Drupal implementers and hosting parties will go through the same process. Especially since RedHat changed its license policy in 5ES; all virtual machines OS-es are covered now by the hosting OS license, making it "cheap" to use Redhat in virtual environments.

> The hardware is: Intel Celeron 2.8GHz, 1x 80GB IDE HDD, 1.5GB RAM

Please note that this hardware doenst do hardware based VT and hence your results will be off compared with "new" servers (AMD/Pacifica, Intel/VT)
