My hosts are all working, but perhaps it's because they are inheriting the hosts
directive from httpd.conf.
Now it seems the setup may be ok as-is! I logged into the linux vm and it doesn't
actually have a web server running! It seems vbox didn't modify the original vmdk,
which I take to mean anything written to the drive is kept in a Snapshot, and
snapshots are presumably applied when vbox loads the drive on startup. Could that
actually be how it works?
