Video Tutorial: Installing Solaris 11 Express in VirtualBox

Jim Laurent has put together a nice 12 minute screencast on installing Solaris 11 Express in VirtualBox, including how to setup shared folders with the host OS.

The video also covers an important tip, which is that the root password is expired at install time and must be immediately changed. Otherwise, GUI tools prompting for the root password will not work. You can read the details in the release notes: Gksu Does Not Report Expired Password.
