heh... virtualbox 2.0 just came out today

Ya, they just upgraded to 1.6.6 yesterday. Crazy.

2.0.0 is a major release though. It has some new features like 64bit VMs, but It isn't compatible with old snapshots anymore, which is really a downside to me. Remember to shutdown the OSs in VBox before upgrading to the new version.

Struggling with VirtualBox Guest Additions for Puppy 4.3 - using VBox version 3.08. Would this work for that version too, by any chance? Thx!

thank you for this package. Ive been using it to create netbootable "humungous initrd's". Ive tested the guest additions.

One thing I notice, Im not sure if this is the place to post it...Ive found that the netbootable initrds, when netbooted does not connect automatically to the web at startup (even after running the network setup wizard). However, when I install the same files to a hard drive on the machines, then I do get an automatic connection at bootup. Any ideas?
