Okay, experimenting with VM's after being soured to VMWare Server having
"minor problems" with networking on latest kernels in Hardy.
I took a test system and installed VirtualBox from the .deb binary (not
OSE version) from VirtualBox's site.
Installed WinXP. It's running with NAT networking, as it appears that
there are a few hoops you have to jump through to get bridging to work
Clarification: if I have a network of 192.168.x.x, with the host on
192.168.0.10, and the guest in VirtualBox is NAT'd to 10.0.2.10 by it's
own autoconfiguration, it looks like it can get into the Internet but I
can't ping or connect to a machine on, say, 192.168.0.15, within my own
network? And 192.168.0.15 can't get into the VM's system unless I enable
port forwarding on 192.168.0.10 to point to the 10.0.2.10 address?
