That'd be great!  One of the guys on this list may be able to provide hosting 
- it'd be good to have all the images on one site, I guess.

If a domain is configured to work "out of the box" in terms of fstab settings, 
as you have done then it's even better!

Regarding network settings to use, etc...  not sure what's best.  I guess not 
hard-coding network settings might be useful, allowing users to start off by 
setting these options in the domain configuration file.

I had the same thought :-)  I guess maybe they haven't been updated for a 
while.  You may find something useful in the community images on the Bochs 
(http://bochs.sf.net) website, although they were a little out of date last 
time I checked.  The QEmu-oriented FreeOSZoo (http://www.freeoszoo.com) 
provides a range of more up-to-date images.
