what OS is included in that image? or does it use your existing OS?

it tells you directly that it cannot find the xterm binary on your system or the 
virtual one... xterm is a terminal generally used with a graphical 
environment... it is trying to open a new xterm window... this is why i ask 
about what OS is in the image or if it uses your existing OS...

i can only hope that this might point you in the right direction... i do not do 
virtual anythings... i can only tell you that if i tried it on one of my *nix 
boxen, the example would not run there either because that box has no GUI 
environment at all...
