I've just been playing with xen (http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Research/SRG/netos/xen). There was an article about it in the latest Linux Format mag. It allows execution of multiple guest operating systems (a la vmware) with amazing performance. I managed to compile and run it on my gentoo box, and run a guest debian installation (lack of documentation and clues on my part prevented me from doing more than this). You can download a bootable demo cdrom with several guest operating systems (which I had more luck with). I note that its in pkgsrc on NetBSD.

Looks as if if could be added to to portage - are there any moves to do this?

There are a couple of threads about Xen already, such as
