    Which of AMD and Intels motherboard and CPU combinations support VT and
    Pacifica for paravirtualization?

  2. All Socket AM2 mobos support Pacifica;

    Almost all Socket-T (775LGA) mobos support VT.

    Or is it the other way around? Anyways, don't worry about it; shop
    around, and as long as it's "Vista Ready" or at least supports a CPU
    with Ring Minus One, you'll be able to run hardware virtualization
    (which is what you want).

    All AMD AM2 socket chips support hardware virtualization. Finding software that supports
    full virtualization (run unmodified OS) vs paravirtualization (run OS modified to run virtualized)
    may be hard. Xen supports paravirtualization and Linux will soon ship with virtualization
    supported by default.

    AMD chips always support enabling virtualization. Intel chips that support VT have to have the
    feature enabled by the bios. If the bios doesn't enable virtualization, you can't use it on
    that motherboard.
