SV: LFS & Virtualbox

I've just installed LFS for the first time in a VMWare virtual machine.
Besides being aware of the network card exposed by the VMWare virtual
hardware and enabling that in the kernel, there was no problems at all and
it runs like a charm.

As you mention yourself, there should be no problems other that being aware
of the virtual hardware the VirtualBox presents.

I have similiar question, but noone answered. It seems either noone is
interested, or noone has tried it.

I booted LiveCD on a KVM virtual machine, and it boots just fine. It is an
unusual "hardware" configuration, so I think one has to watch out for funky
messages during boot though..

My question was about caveats and experiences from installing LFS from
inside a virtual machine.
