Has anyone been able to install OpenSolaris in VirtualBox...the installation
from within the live environment seems to fail instantly and the error it
give is something to the effect that the new user I am supposed to be
creating is not in the /etc/passwd list....the classic chicken and egg
problem...just wondering if someone else had success.  I set the vm
parameters to 8GB fixed HDD, 1 GB RAM and 128 MB video RAM.
