One question though! How do I change the virtual machines date and time? It's currently set to before 2003-09-28 which is before the timestamps in the install tarball. The result is an annoying message that says something like: tar: usr/local/include: time stamp 2003-09-28 hh:mm:ss is X seconds in the future.
I think that being able to change the date on the vm would speed up the install process quite a bit
