That's what I get for scanning over the page quickly. Didn't notice
anything that wasn't hard up against the left side.

Good. Like I said, it was a year or more ago that I tried. I was stuck
trying to follow some seemingly Debian-oriented documentation that
attempted to walk me through setting up the bridge in my host network
configs so the guest could use it. I think that I almost even got it
to work.

That would be no different than VMWare. In its latest incarnation,
VMWare automatically recompiles the needed modules when they change. I
don't even need to tell it to.

If VirtualBox is now as easy as you've made it out, then I may give it
another go.
