Introducing the OpenBSD Virtualization FAQ

Contributed by Peter N. M. Hansteen on from the vmm! vmm! dept.

Returning readers are likely aware that OpenBSD in its OpenBSD/amd64 and OpenBSD/i386 varieties comes with virtualization built in, brought to you by the vmm(4) subsystem.

Now getting started with OpenBSD virtualization has become even easier: The OpenBSD FAQ has a new Virtualization section, written mainly by Solene Rapenne (solene@) and added to the site in this commit, that offers an introduction to the concepts as well as instructions on how to get started with vmm(4).

That's right: go read the thing, and play with vmm! Thanks, Solene!
