just over three years, but I've finally gotten it to work. More or less.

That is to say, I have a VM currently running which is finishing up an installation. It hasn't completed yet, but it's gotten past the critical point now and I'm hopeful that a reboot test will be successful. If it is, I'll need to make sure that the updates that I've done on the live installer to massage it into running are committed to packages too, and then I'm all set.

Looks like you'll be able to install wheezy on a system without hard disk. How's that for 'Universal operating system'?
