Unstable for the host - but since I am using a fairly old FreeBSD, it
could be partly to blame. I'll need to see if it misbehaves as much on

It seems to work fine, until the guest tries to change video mode (going
from text to graphics) - this behaviour happens with Windows, Linux and
OS/2 as guest - at which time, the host experiences a sudden reset.

I have FreeBSD 5 which I will get up to date and then try out... I am
also going to try setting up the guest as a text-only setup and use
