Hi,

Please, forgive me if I'm chiming in, missing the point.

I just want to comment on the fragment below.

I recently found myself in the same situation, and had to spend some
amount of time figuring out how to make it tick. Eventually, I got kvm and
networking ticking and decided to write about my findings.

Perhaps, the first entry can be of some help for people starting fresh with
virtualization.

Best regards,

I haven't a clue.
It produces a window which displays a machine boot sequence,
which is what I expect to see. There's clearly large gaps in my
understanding of what's going on. The sequence described at
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/JeOSVMBuilder

"This page aims at documenting how to a create virtual
appliance using Ubuntu Server Edition's JeOS and vmbuilder."

This gave me hope regarding being able to build and use vm's but
it seems the page presupposes a considerable amount of
understanding I don't have.

Where would I find that file?
(the .cfg file I quoted above is one I wrote according to instructions on
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/JeOSVMBuilder)
