How to test Debian Edu CD/DVDs on Virtual Machines
This is a guide for testing Debian Edu on virtual machines running Debian or Ubuntu connected to a dhcp network (also including steps to support networks with static Internet address).
For testing you can choose between virtualbox, kvm or qemu. The guide got the same test network commendation, IP addresses.
Test config 1a: The user can choose to test combiserver (main + thin client sever) on one virtual machine and 1+n thin clients on an 1+n virtual machines.
Test config 1b: The user can run a combiserver with a cirtual machine running diskless client on 1+n virtual machines.
Test config 1a+1b.
Test config 2: The user can run main server on a separate virtual machine, thin client server on an other virtual machine and thin clients and diskless clients (almost as 1a+1b).
What's also needs are:
- Short guide on how to report bugs at the TestCDinstall page.
- Short guide how to get access to logs and screen dumps as easy as possible. This makes it easier making accurate bug reports.

I'll see 1 and 2 as mandatory documentation. Suggestion 3 is just a wish
