Hmmm ... not sure what the best option is.

If all of them are linux (or to be precise any OS that use X, like
linux/solaris), I think you should be able to run them headless on a
VM (Xen, virtualbox, whatever, use whichever you're familiar with),
and enable xdmcp server on the guest OS. After that, setup the X
greeter on dom0/host to run as XDMCP browser/chooser (use Google if
you don't know how).

I tried something similar recently (in my case it was natty-gnome vs
oneiric-kde), using linux containers (lxc), and it works just fine.
IIRC even the desktop effects are working.
