Virtualbox is not compatible with Netbsd, and I would really like to try netbsd (get dhcp, X setup, decent DE) before I do a full hdd install on another computer.

I don't have the money for Vmware....

Would qemu work? It's interface looks confusing.

There may be a workaround for virtualbox, google it. I will try to do so too.

Vmware Server (http://vmware.com/products/server/), it's what I use for any BSD virtualization and it doesn't even cost a nickel :). I believe Qemu should also work and KVM might too but I've never tried it.

it works with xen

http://www.netbsd.org/ports/xen/

i think you can use kvm with xen (since kvm is just the manager). i havent much experience with xen because it's not very good for windows server 2008, which is a shame. it was fun having two machines with an ubuntu virtual machine kinda floating between the two. i could unplug either of the machines and the vm would just keep on pinging back and running as normal as if nothing had happened thanks to live migration and failover

VMWare Server is free & easy to use.
