Virtualbox questions ....

I just pkg-installed virtualbox-ose  virtualbox-ose-additions 
virtualbox-ose-kmod & whatever they wanted as dependencies. I followed 
most of the directions at, 
until I got down to the part about changing permissions for 
|/dev/vboxnetctl .... there is no such animal on my box (FBSD 9.3 
64-bit, new install) .... I skipped down to launch virtualbox, which 
failed as root because of no display set, but worked as regular user (I 
am su'ed into root from regular user, not console logged in, that may be 
the problem) .... Is anyone using VBox under FBSD 9.3 (w/ desktop, XFCE 
or other) to run Win7 VM's ? Any advice/gotchas/wisdom/etc. :-) ? TIA ....|
