Dragnfly won't boot under virtualbox, it freezes at the countdown
screen. Is there any way to debug this? Maybe it would be cool,  
there are folks (like me) who cannot afford VMWare Virtual PC.
VMWare Server 1.x is available as a free download at, and runs on most Linux distros, and Windows  
Haven't tried DragonflyBSD as a host, but FreeBSD 6.0-6.2 works quite
nicely (as does Debian Linux 4.0, and Windows XP).
I have been running DragonFly in VMWare Server since the first  
release of VMWare Server as a production machine.
Since 1.0.2 it runs without any problems at all.
