yesterday night I tried the one you published before but I wasn't successful to
get it to work with my VirtualBox with regard to networking.
It might have been my fault though.
What would be good is to have a short howto on how to get it working
in various VM environments.
Also, a howto for creating the VM would be good.
Especially this could cover a description how to create
the small and the big version (aka. without its own GUI and with its own GUI).
I guess you haven't changes the networking part for the new release
so I will first try to get the previous image to run properly.
Anyone out there who was successful with VirtualBox?
