well if you are booting of the CD image then you are not using the Virtual hard disks

what i did was connect the image to a MS-W2K-Pro VM, and format it using that (not sure just how
many reboots of VM's i needed to do though :)

when i set mine up as i was using "Host only" for the virtual NICs, i set some rules to allow
everything to pass everywhere.
Once i had everything working i deleted these rules and put in proper ones :)

Build a FreeBSD/Linux VM, copy the m0n0 img into it, attach the .vhd to this VM, and use dd to write
it, detatch .vhd, attach to m0n0 VM, would be how i would attempt it.
