Quick notes regarding nfs mounting from an OpenSolaris VBox guest.
I came up against an issue mounting via nfs from a Linux host to an OpenSolaris virtualbox guest (see this post for automounting nfs on OpenSolaris). Checking the host's logs revealed the issue: mountd: [...] refused mount request [..] illegal port.
This is seemingly caused due to the natted connection between guest and host. Adding (insecure) in the host's /etc/exports line for this export enabled the guest to successfully mount the nfs share.

I recently bought an HP dv 7-1245ca laptop..
The specs are here for this machine. I am currently running Ubuntu 9.04, the development version of Ubuntu. I also run virtualbox on it with Opensolaris 2008.06 as the guest O/S ... I haven't had a chance to work out some issues precluding installation of OSOL as a dual-boot option.
