I found using FF 3.5 works fine.  I think I'm going to fall in and see if I
can help David get Virtual Box ready for prime time.  While VMware Server
works okay, it's obvious they are not too concerned with addressing issues
like browser compatibility.  Can't say I blame them; they are in the game to
make money, not save the world.

Thanks.
