    Did I understand correct that Virtualbox[1]
    does work with recent kernels?

    Yes. However, it needs kernel modules and the relevant package may lag
    behind the Debian kernel.

    Fo rinstance, unstable kernel is currently 2.6.22-3 while
    avail. package of virtualbox modules only provide 2.6.22-2

    So, that means building your own virtualbox modules package, thus have
    kernel sources, etc, etc. Blah. I sometimes want to be just lazy...

    This is of course a problem without real solution unless virtual
    machines software don't use kernel modules..:-)

    Anyway, apart fro mthat, VirtualBox is currently a very good solution
    for D-I testers.
