I would recommend installing OI desktop, not OI server.  Because I too, tried 
to get gnome working in OI server, to no avail.  But if you install OI desktop, 
it simply goes in, brainlessly, simple.

Actually, it does work, and it works reliably, but the setup is very much not 
straightforward.  I'm likely to follow up on this later today, because as 
coincidence would have it, this is on my to-do for today.

Right now, I'll say this much:  When you RDP from a windows machine to a 
windows machine, you get prompted for password.  Nice, right?  Seems pretty 
obvious.   ;-)   But the VirtualBox RDP server doesn't have that capability.   
Pfffft...  You need to enter the username & password into the RDP client, and 
save it, before attempting the connection.

Bummer.  That might be some unsupported hardware for running OI.
