I've already set up a 3.3 Turbo Color Nitro Station in Previous (recompiled to
redirect 5 ports including ssh) DEV + y2K and SLiRP, a 4.2 Turbo NeXTDimension
Nitro Cube running 4.2 DEV +y2K, and a VirtualBox Intel 4.2 Build with
BusLogic SCSI, Sound AWE32, DEV and y2K all on my MacBook.  The VirtualBox is
faster than a scalded cat.  But now Ibm pinin for the fjords so to speak.
