Thanks, Volodya.  Briefly, here's what I did.  Using VirtualBx, I
created a Ubuntu Lucid VM, installed OpenVPN and XeroBank credentials,
and made three clones.  I then booted each VM, and established the VPN,
ensuring that each had a distinct IP address.

Finally, I installed Freenet on each, in darknet mode, and "introduced"
each node to the other three as instructed.  But they didn't connect to
each other.  As a control, I put one of them in opennet mode, and it
immediately established many connections.
