Can somebody direct me to the VBox install manual for BOINC projects?

Specifically: is there a need to configure the VM w/ respect to host/VM bridge?

OR are the various BOINC project VM WU-images configured by default to utilize the host network adapter?

If you run a project that uses a VM, it will send you the correct VM file. Virtualbox communicates through BOINC, which takes care of all the work related communications, so you don't have to set anything up. Just add the project that uses a VM to BOINC and you're off.
