OpenNebula looks good went you look only at the documentation. I implemented 
an infrastructure with OpenNebula and in reality is does less. You can do a 
better OpenNebula by just writeing your own scripts using libvirt. On the test 
I used OpenNebula that comes with Ubuntu 9.10. I tried to installit from 
source but it failled to start. At the esence OpenNebula is just a bunch on 
ruby scripts that copies over ssh the virtual hard-drive and starts a machine 
on that host. When is comes to network all settings are in vane because the 
IP's are alocated via the usual dhcp way (from the dhcp server currently on 
the network). So if you what to use this I sugest to to spawn the machines 
manualy and configure your network manualy to get more control over them. I 
sugest try using Eucalyptus.

Thanks, Ian.  OpenNebula does look a little bit more mature than
Eucalyptus.  I'll look into it in more detail.
