Hi Mark,

I do have it working now in VirtualBox.

I may try it again down the road, just to see how smooth the experience should 
be. :)

The only real problem I have with this setup is the fact that the windowing 
system (XFCE) in VirtualBox is loosing mouse functionality.

The mouse pointer is there, but I can’t always select things graphically.  
Mainly happens when I open a window and try to click on the desktop.  Oh well, 
that’s the cutting edge I guess.

I was also installing GuixSD with QEMU.  That runs a lot slower than the 
VirtualBox install, but I probably could have given more resources to that 

At any rate the QEMU install bombed out with an error, so now I am using the 
hydra site and things are progressing so well that it was up and running in a 
very short time.
