Herr Schulz-
     Thanks for your response.  In fact, this is exactly what I would
like to do, namely, use Mac hardware (Intel imac / mac mini / etc.) to
run all three of the most popular OS's, like so:

            /    |     \
      OS X  M$   Linux

     Why is this impossible in a domU ?  I thought that the point of
the hardware virtualization (VTX, VMX, etc.) was that unmodified guest
OS's can be run, as if they are running on the 'bare metal'.
