Thread-topic: Graphical demo CD beta

There's a beta-2 version of the graphical demo CD for you to try out --
feedback and suggestions greatly appreciated.

This version features Debian Sarge Linux 2.4/2.6, FreeBSD and NetBSD,
all on one CD! 
It uses Xvnc so that when you start another VM you get its Xserver
appearing in a window on the host. 

The temporary URL is as follows:

md5sum f449418a0bd00b3ec0444d54445d67a6 
Size 727257088 bytes

If the feedback is positive we'll hopefully move to an official release
candidate within the week.

Full credit goes to Tim Deegan, plus Christian for the NetBSD rootfs.
