Subject: VPS for Pen Test

Has anyone ever created a VPS to run pen tests against?

If so how did you go about creating it, ive seen virtozzo server 
that allows you to create a VPS, and i dont know if VMWARE does 

Any help would be great!


I've used both vmware workstation and vmware gsx server for creating
test target machines. It's nice, I can setup a host and test against
several patch levels at once.

I've also used vmware workstation to bring several attack OS builds with
me (WinXP, Operator, Netware, etc...)

Just be sure to enable bridged networking.
