It would be nice if I could just create a VB machine and tell it to load

I know, I know.

I suspect it's not possible. when I get some more time maybe tonight I'll dig around more earnestly.

By the way, Felmon, why did you reject the distro version of VB and make
a direct download from Oracle ?

I kept getting errors having to do with missing modules (vboxdrv) and looking around I saw others having the same problem. landed on some posts about using Oracle's so purged the repository stuff and Oracle installed pretty much without a problem (except some errors of misunderstanding on my part).

not being used to it everytime I see it, it's a shock - Windows 7 in a tiny little window on a Debian desktop!
