Flashing Om2008.8 rootfs under Windows is *LONG*

FWIW, I have a laptop with 2gig ram and the host if Windows XP. I know I
know, but for work that's what I need. So I use the free
http://virtualbox.org and run a virtualized Ubuntu on my Windows XP SP3 box,
but I'm sure it is fine in Vista also. That way one does not have to
shutdown one or the other. However to be honest I have not yet bothered to
setup usb connect to my FR this way (just lazy) as it so happens to be
actually easier to plug it into one of my other machines on my home network
which runs ubuntu natively and I just ssh across to the other machine that
way. YMMV

cheers Denis
