it apears to be a valid file
i cant open it with xarchiver Archive format is not recognized!
i cant use it as a guest addon in virtual box
so the question is how do i boot to it in virtual box?
should i just use the .iso desktop distribution and install cloud?
also can i just insert ether's as root in the vm and pxe boot other machines to it on the network?
thanks all in advance :cool:
