Lazyweb: Virtualization software

I am looking at building a bunch of virtualized machines, and I have no idea what software I should be using.

  1. I want to create and run images on Linux and OS X
  2. I want those images to be runnable on Linux, OS X, and Solaris (optional)
  3. I want to make images that run Linux, Windows, and Solaris
  4. I want to run one set of images on a box connected to the internet, and have those images appear as separate machines.
  5. Bonus round: I want there to be some ISP/hosting provider that I can send images to and have them hosted.

I am assuming that my choice are: VMWare, Parallels, and VirtualBox.

Useful pointers and advice appreciated.
