"This guide explains how you can run virtual machines
with VirtualBox 4.0 on a headless Fedora 14 server. Normally you
use the VirtualBox GUI to manage your virtual machines, but a
server does not have a desktop environment. Fortunately, VirtualBox
comes with a tool called VBoxHeadless that allows you to connect to
the virtual machines over a remote desktop connection, so there's
no need for the VirtualBox GUI.
"I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!
"1 Preliminary Note
"I have tested this on a Fedora 14 server (host system) with the
IP address 192.168.0.100 where I'm logged in as a normal user (user
name admin in this example) instead of as root."
