That's all I need!  Could you send me the configuration for a working 
VM?  My virtual SATA drive is not recognized if using PIIX3. 
("VBoxManage showvminfo" is verbose, but we don't have to worry about 
missing anytihng.)

Interesting.  The log output of "download.config" doesn't contain the 
network-related errors when using PIIX3 - hopefully that's a good sign. 
(Without storage, I can't tell if it actually works, of course.)
