Default Jailed QEMU + other OS

I'm planning to setup a jail with QEMU installed so I can install CentOS on top of of it. I'm planning to make lots of jailed hosts installing Ubuntu, Reactos, and even XP. The question is has anyone done this and I'd like for all the virtual systems to be running at the same time. I will be installing X in all of them.

I can't offer much except I hope you have a high speced system if you want any decent performance out of any of these "virtual" systems. You'll take a slight performance hit from qemu, plus X in each jail... Lots of RAM and 2-4 CPU's I'd say.

Then again, I might be wrong.

You are trying to put one type of virtualization into another type of virtualization, that is not the way mate.

Its like putting a box to a box.

You can of course run several QEMU virtual hosts, especialyl with --nographic option along with FreeBSD Jails but do not mess OS level virtualization (Jails) with type 2 hypervisor virtualization (QEMU).

Run Foreign OSes in QEMU and add virtual hosts with Jails.
