I tried virtualbox some months ago & had serious problems (crashed the 
system w/ file-system corruption). I suspect pilot error, so I posted 
about that & was referred to a virtualbox list @ Oracle (or whoever 
maintains v-box). I tried to subscribe & it never replied. I was using 
V4.3.10-ish at that time, it's up to 4.3.20 now. I gave up back then due 
to the crashes. I am AOK w/ virtualbox if it (now) works. What version 
of it (v-box) & FreeBSD are you using ? TIA & thx for the reply :-) ....
