In order to allow the shared file systems to be mounted in VBox, I think

actually used under the hood. Since it works on Windows hosts, I suspect
it is not NFS.
CD-ROMs are how you get the extension pack to install in the guest OS.
If you want to install ttylinux into a VM without an existing virtual
disk image, you'd probably want to start with an ISO, so you'd need
those drivers. I may be confused.
I just pushed a first test virtio_i686 platform building capability
Maybe I need to be more clear. I already do use VirtualBox.
Sometimes I use the free VB on Windows to run Fedora, and I use its
shared directory that is implemented by a kernel driver in their Guest
Sometimes I use free VB to test a ttylinux build.
I don't know what most folks do with their VM and so I don't know
what a useful kernel config would be, other than virtio.
Network File Systems? TUN/TAP devices? Etc. Let me know.
