I would really recommend switching to VMware ESXi if at all possible.  I 
have a lot of FreeBSD VMs running under ESXi 3.5 and 4.0 that work just 
great with kern.hz=100 and openntpd.

We actually kept everything running on Linux+VMware Server 1.0 until we 
could make the switch to ESXi; the VMware Server 2.0 product wasn't 
reliable for us at all and was a total pain to manage.
