    Ok, with messing with the settings in the terminal services client in ubuntu, I have managed to get ctrl-alt-del working by specifically choosing then en-uk keyboard, rather than the option to detect it

    Sorry for another question.... but how would i get the new VM to have an IP address on the same network as the host, and be viewable from all other hosts on the network - rather than being NAT'd from the gentoo host IP?

    Would that involve what I took a note of earlier?
    For advanced networking setups you should emerge:
    * net-misc/bridge-utils and sys-apps/usermode-utilities

    Just knocked this up to simplify things for me.. Doesnt do any sanity checking for input or anything, but its a start...

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    echo Create New VirtualBox Machine Helper
    echo ------------------------------------
    echo
    echo -n "Enter a name for your machine: "
    read MACHINENAME
    echo -n "How much RAM should it have? (eg 512): "
    read RAM
    echo -n "How big HD to create? (eg 10000 = 10gb): "
    read HDSIZE
    echo -n "Do you need to register a new .iso? (Y/N): "
    read REGISO
            if [ "$REGISO" = "Y" ] || [ "$REGISO" = "y" ]; then
                    echo -n "Enter .iso file to register, including full path: "
                    read NEWISO
                    echo Registering new .iso ...
                    VBoxManage registerimage dvd $NEWISO
            fi
    echo -n "Enter .iso file to use for boot, including full path: "
    read ISO
    read -p "Press any key to start creating the Virtual Machine "
    echo Creating machine...
    VBoxManage createvm -name "$MACHINENAME" -register
    echo Setting specs...
    VBoxManage modifyvm "$MACHINENAME" -memory "$RAMMB" -acpi on -boot1 dvd -nic1 nat
    echo Creating HD...
    VBoxManage createvdi -filename "$MACHINENAME.vdi" -size $HDSIZE -register
    echo Registering HD...
    VBoxManage modifyvm "$MACHINENAME" -hda "$MACHINENAME.vdi"
    echo Setting Boot CD...
    VBoxManage modifyvm $MACHINENAME -dvd $ISO
    echo All Done...
    echo
    also made this as well for new cd images:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    echo Virtualbox register new .iso image
    echo ----------------------------------
    echo -n "Enter image filename (including path): "
    read iso
    VBoxManage registerimage dvd $iso
    Not sure if anyones as lazy as me, but posted these here anyway...

    To install the Guest Additions, you need to register the .iso which is included...

    Code:
    VBoxManage registerimage dvd /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.2/additions/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso
    and then assign it to the VM

    Code:
    VBoxManage controlvm "2003Server" dvdattach /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.2/additions/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso
