I'm trying to consolidate my servers for sake of power consumption, heat, space and sanity.  I currently run a fileserver, sql database program, synch/backup on one box running Ubuntu 10.04  I would like to setup endian on the same box.  Is it best to run Endian in a virtual machine from the Ubuntu system or am I better doing a fresh install of Endian and running a virtual machine with Ubuntu and all my other stuff on it?

I have a system with two physical NICs running ubuntu
I have VirtualBox installed and two VMs: endian+webserver(DMZ)

my /etc/network/interfaces is:

iface lo inet loopback

#auto eth0
#iface eth0 inet manual
#    up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up
#    down /sbin/ifconfig eth0 down

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet manual
    up /sbin/ifconfig eth1 up
    down /sbin/ifconfig eth1 down

eth0 is my GREEN and eth1 my RED.
both are "bridged" in VirtualBox

webserver is in a "internal" net together with endian.

Only drawback of this setup is I have to wait for EFW to come up and then connect eth0 (EFW is my DHCP server).

Thanks for the input.
I noticed VMWare has an appliance.  So was thinking of trying that.
I was going to run 3 nics; 1) WAN 2) LAN 3) Shared Wireless-which will not be able to reach the LAN
Was also going to have Endian run the DHCP service as well.
