Yeah. It's very easy. Proxmox is for super lazy people like me. :)

Yes. The documentation is fantastic. Top notch. OpenVZ is very simple 
and utilizes existing features in Linux directly. As opposed to XEN (at 
least as it ships with centos 5) which utilizes an entire super 
structure of complex shell scripts to do it's networking setup. If you 
have a few years of server admin experience it's very easy to get up and 
going. You can utilize all your existing CLI knowledge.
