As far as a date for moving the oorexx domains is concerned, then to be quite honest I haven't started to think about that; I'm still recovering from the move of the rexxla domains :-)
Given that I'll be travelling in Europe for 3 weeks in March, then I should try and get the move done well before then. That way it should be settled before I go, and you can play with the build machine without relying on me.
My vacation does raise an issue on support of the RICE machine. I think we need a backup administrator. I'll raise this with the RexxLA Board, but I think you David will be my first choice :-)
As far as what versions of operating systems to install, then I think both Win2k and XP (and Vista :-) should be installed. The issue of managing the build machine will be more one of how to schedule what VMs are running at any one time and who is using them, otherwise you'll run out of memory before you run out of disk space.
