slackware in virtualbox

I thought, hey I'll finally give Slackware a go! So I installed it as a virtual machine guest using VirtualBox. The install was pretty easy really, so that was good. Problem is the guest uses 50% CPU when it's idle, when other guests (Debian/XP) don't.

Regardless; I think Pat deserves mad props ;)
