To do server partitioning, you'll have to acquire a Unisys ES7000, IBM
zSeries or comparable system. Standard x86 multi-proc systems (As you
would buy from Dell, for example) do not support this.

You can however run Win2k inside VMware on a FreeBSD machine. This option
is even more flexible than partitioning as it lets you turn the "VM" off
and reacquire the resources that were tied up by it.
