VirtualBox is really great for no-hassles virtualisation for newbies.
I rely on it too. But, I haven't had a good experience with FreeBSD
7.0 on VirtualBox, too many kernel panics. And it's not just me there
are lots of people who have had the same problem with no evident
solution.
I am not discouraging this solution but informing of a problem that I
have faced. If there's a work around for that, I'd be happy to try it
myself.
