comment How to load kernel module at startup on FC9?
Depends on the module. If need earlier in the boot process use /etc/rc.modules as James mentioned.

comment How would you build a cheap Virtual Server farm for home development?
Digging into this some more I guess one would go with VMWare vSphere Essentials which includes VMWare vCenter Server for Essentials which includes the vSphere Client. It looks like this can be had for $995/year (support is optional). However, vCenter Server and vSphere Client are Windows only and unless you go back in time and use Windows XP you have to pony up for Windows Server (2008) since Vista and 7 are not supported for vCenter Server or vCenter Update Manager. I wonder how their own salespeople keep this straight!

comment How would you build a cheap Virtual Server farm for home development?
Don't you need vCenter Server and VSphere Client to effectively manage/update the environment? My understanding is there is no Web Access to ESXi. VMWare's licensing/pricing is very confusing. I'd be interested in deploying a single ESXi host (no HA, VMotion or DRS) and configuring < 10 guests (all RHEL/CentOS) to use iSCSI storage (provided by Openfiler). But I can't seem to determine what the costs involved are. Anyone else do something similar? How much do the VMWare licenses cost assuming you aren't using the Service Console to manage the deployment (nevermind the hardware)?

Install ESXi to a USB key, pop it into some PC that allows you to boot from USB. If you don't want to use the local drives on the PC you can export an NFS share from another server and wire up the ESXi server to use the NFS share to store the converted VM.
