blergh. i hate these versioning errors.

one of the things that i do, that is not common practice at the lab,  
is to use VirtualBox (Sun's virtualization product) to create a number  
of different virtual machines with different revisions of (X)Ubuntu  
and different compiler revs.

however... it is... a major pain in the rear having to maintain this  
many different configurations, which is why i believe it's not common  
practice @ the lab.

but... it is a relatively easy way to test out a configuration, find  
if it works, and if it doesn't you don't have to recover the state of  
your main system.

you may be wondering.. why is meadhbh plugging VirtualBox? it's just  
that it seemed a LOT easier to get VirtualBox running on Ubuntu 8.04  
than vmware. VirtualBox on the mac was even easier. and it was a free
