This is getting somewhat Off-Topic, but it's worth clarifying for the
interested:  the stripped down "RedHat" you see in ESX is actually a VM
running on top of the true ESX hypervisor.  It provides the console to
the server, and tools to manipulate the various underlying hypervisor,
but it's effectively a sibling to the other VMs, not their parent.

Not that that makes any difference to Condor ;-)
