Screencast: Installing OpenSolaris in VirtualBox

I was talking to a teacher before the Christmas break who was interested in replacing Windows with OpenSolaris in his elementary school lab. He knew very little about OpenSolaris and was considering using VirtualBox to take it for a spin. There's lots of good documentation on installing OpenSolaris in VirtualBox, but sometimes folks just like to watch the process.

The 12 minute screencast below covers all the steps, from getting the software to installing the VirtualBox guest additions.
