*) jails provide virtual hosting at native speed, but _only_ for FreeBSD guests. i.e., you can't run Linux in a FreeBSD jail *) qemu works well on FreeBSD in my experience, but there is a considerable performance hit. *) Xen should give you what you want, but I've no information on the status of Xen on FreeBSD at this time.
