So after a multi-hour download of a VM image of the OS, followed by a day spent getting it ready to run in my environment, multiple hours of copying installation files from the physical machine to the VM image, extraction of the compressed files, and the installation of the software, I can now report:
It didn't work.
Well, there's two days shot all to heck.
I looked in the Jargon File, it doesn't seem to have been updated in quite a while...and there's no entry for VM.
Which is probably enough, to be honest.
