Just an fyi.  Tried installing the server kernel, but any attempt
to boot it caused VirtualBox 4.0.2 to crash.

Took around 48 hours to compile a custom kernel.  When installing
the modules, the root filesystem ran out of space.

I used a knoppix dvd image to move /usr/src to /home, and created
a symlink, in it's place.

Even though fsck shows the filesystems to be clean, any attempt
to boot now either crashes VirtualBox, or just gets a black screen
with no response (doesn't matter which kernel I select).

Tried installing the latest VirtualBox 4.0.4, but no change.

Looks like I'm going to have to start over.  This time I'll put
the .vdi file on an ext2 filesystem, as there are known problems
with ext4 and virtualbox, regarding the usage of the host i/o

I expect it'll be at least another three days before I can produce
any comparison between using 1000 or 100 HZ timers.
