This is an install using liveinst in sugar terminal to the VM's Hard Disk.
It is no longer a live file system with a persistence overlay
All I am doing is copying the 8 resulting files:
''Soas-v3-Mirabelle.vmdk <- Use this file
on the 4 GB 2nd USB and running them from there with either VMPlayer or
VirtualBox 3.2 for OSX or Ubuntu
The common interface is provided by the virtual host.
(Note: this also works for Windoz XP Pro.: It does not need to be
re-authorized as it senses no change when run on another OS and/or PC
due to t6he common interface provided by the virtual host.)
Please test it really works well.
