    5151'''GENI-in-a-Box Fedora flavor''': At this time !VirtualBox shared folders do not work with GENI-in-a-Box.   If you are running on Mac OS or Linux, you can scp from Geni-in-a-Box to your computer to copy files to and from GENI-in-a-Box and your computer.  If you are on Windows you will need to install and run the ssh daemon on your computer before you can use scp to it from GENI-in-a-Box.

     53== 3. Suspending and resuming your GENI-in-a-Box session  ==
     54You can suspend your GENI-in-a-Box session by ''hibernating'' your GENI-in-a-Box virtual machine.   This will save the state of the virtual machine on disk and will allow you to resume your work the next time you start up !VirtualBox.

     60The GENI-in-a-Box aggregate follows the ProtoGENI model of installing on each node in the slice files with information that might be useful to the experimenter.  Specifically:
     61   *  The manifest rspec is available in all the experimenter nodes at {{{/prof/geni-in-a-box.net/exp/<slicename>/tbdata/geni_manifest}}}.
     62   *  The fully qualified name of the node is available in {{{/var/emulab/boot/nickname}}}.  An example of a fully qualified node name is {{{pc101.myslice.geni-in-a-box.net}}} where {{{myslice}}} is the name of the slice.
