Thanks to the listing at http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/sys/430983175.html
I'm going to be picking up a 220R this evening; I'll finally have a decent box
to run Solaris 10 on.

What are my options for running virtual machines on this hardware? Ideally,
I'd like to run a few virtual x86 machines and clear out some of the clutter
of older PC hardware I've been running. I thought that VMWare would do it, but
they appear to not support Solaris as a host operating system (let alone not
supporting the SPARC platform). Xen seems to be working towards Solaris
support, but all of the prepackaged stuff for OpenSolaris is x86/x64 only.

Am I stuck here, or is there a way I can run a couple of x86 VMs?
