 Testing Digest, Vol 33, Issue 29

Kris -- I have PCBSD 8.0-Alpha 20091015 running inside VirtualBox.  The host
system is PCBSD 7.1.1.  My keyboard, mouse, and VESA driver all configured
without any problem whatsoever.

VirtualBox.org has a "Readme" or FAQ with a section about configuration on
Linux systems, but I don't know if Michael's situation is the subject of any
special requirements.

The only impediment in VirtualBox that I experienced was a lack of Guest
Additions that would let me enlarge the screen size, establish shared
folders on the host, and cut & paste.  (Of course, the lack of Guest
Additions is not PCBSD's fault.)
