did you try the alternate setting in /bin/X ?
currently it uses qemu settings, and the virtual box settings are 
commented out

you also need to use the option "disable mouse integration" in the 
"machine" menu in order to have the mouse respond.

if you use NAT or a brigded interface (vbox option) attached to a DHCP 
server you can use
dhclient eth0

otherwise put an ifconfig and route line into rc.local

maybe uncommenting some things in /etc/mdev.conf can help there, let me 
know if you got it working.
