Updated the Readme a bit to point out what host and guest OSes I've used this repo with, and some of the problems I've encountered.

 Originally, these scripts were designed only for LH64_602_B2 hosts and LH64_602_B2 guests.  But it turned out I scarcely needed to change anything to make them work with Lupu5284 guests as well, so instead of making a separate almost identical repo, I just slightly modified this repo.

68
-<br><br>
69
-And when it gets jammed, it even often takes a long time to even react to Ctrl-Alt-Backspace (the keyboard shortcut which is supposed to instantly break out of X Windows and end a lot of processes).

71
-That glitch is even worse with virtual LH64_602_B2, since virtual systems run slower than real systems.  And in general in Puppy Linux, that sort of thing seems more likely to happen when running low on RAM - and usually, I don't give my virtual machines as much RAM as I give to my real systems.

 Notes for Lucid Puppy Linux 5.2.8 version 004 (Lupu5284):
101
-<br><br>
102
-Unlike LH64_602_B2, Lupu5284 apparently can't properly read most optical discs inside a virtual optical disc drive attached to a virtual SATA controller.
103
-<br><br>
104
-For some reason, I was only able to read my ISO containing this VirtualBox Guest Setup repo.  Even trying to open the official Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 version 004 virtual disc gave me errors - even though that was the very disc my virtual machine had booted from!

107 101
 
108
-<br><br>
109
-So, to get around that problem, I changed my virtual machine's Storage settings to make it use a virtual IDE controller.  That means I can only have 4 virtual optical discs mounted in Lupu5284 at the same time - or less if I wanted a virtual hard disk attached to my virtual IDE controller (which I didn't).
110
-<br><br>
111
-Which is a bit of a nuisance, but not that bad, since it's possible to put Lucid's DevX SFS, kernel headers SFS, and this VirtualBox Guest Setup Scripts repo inside the same virtual disc.
112
-<br><br>
113
-(But, if you plan on editing the VirtualBox Guest Setup Scripts, it might actually be better to keep them on a separate disk without the other stuff - especially the SFS files - since that will make it easier to unmount the VirtualBox Guest Setup Scripts ISO so you can mount an updated version.)
114
-<br><br>
115
-You can put them all in the same ISO by putting Lucid's DevX SFS and kernel headers SFS inside the VirtualBox Guest Setup folder before running the script "Make an ISO Containing This Package" inside the "For Host System To Run" folder.
116
-<br><br>
117
-It might even be possible to add the contents of the official VirtualBox Guest Additions ISO, but I haven't tried that.  But that would make it so you only need 2 virtual discs instead of 3 or 4.

 Notes for Lucid Puppy Linux 5.2.8 version 004 (Lupu5284):
83
-<br>
83
+<br><br>
84 84
 Unlike LH64_602_B2, Lupu5284 apparently can't properly read most optical discs inside a virtual optical disc drive attached to a virtual SATA controller.
85
-<br>
85
+<br><br>
86 86
 For some reason, I was only able to read my ISO containing this VirtualBox Guest Setup repo.  Even trying to open the official Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 version 004 virtual disc gave me errors - even though that was the very disc my virtual machine had booted from!
87 87
 
88 88
 
89 89
 <br>
90 90
 So, to get around that problem, I changed my virtual machine's Storage settings to make it use a virtual IDE controller.  That means I can only have 4 virtual optical discs mounted in Lupu5284 at the same time - or less if I wanted a virtual hard disk attached to my virtual IDE controller (which I didn't).
91
-<br>
91
+<br><br>
92 92
 Which is a bit of a nuisance, but not that bad, since it's possible to put Lucid's DevX SFS, kernel headers SFS, and this VirtualBox Guest Setup Scripts repo inside the same virtual disc.
93
-<br>
93
+<br><br>
94 94
 (But, if you plan on editing the VirtualBox Guest Setup Scripts, it might actually be better to keep them on a separate disk without the other stuff - especially the SFS files - since that will make it easier to unmount the VirtualBox Guest Setup Scripts ISO so you can mount an updated version.)
95
-<br>
95
+<br><br>
96 96
 You can put them all in the same ISO by putting Lucid's DevX SFS and kernel headers SFS inside the VirtualBox Guest Setup folder before running the script "Make an ISO Containing This Package" inside the "For Host System To Run" folder.
97
-<br>
97
+<br><br>
98 98
 It might even be possible to add the contents of the official VirtualBox Guest Additions ISO, but I haven't tried that.  But that would make it so you only need 2 virtual discs instead of 3 or 4.

 For some things, I actually prefer a Lupu5284 guest over an LH64_602_B2 guest, because LH64_602_B2 has a very annoying tendency to sometimes get jammed up and extremely slow, such as if I just open certain web pages, or scroll down a page with a lot of large images.
51

52

51

 And when it gets jammed, it even often takes a long time to even react to Ctrl-Alt-Backspace (the keyboard shortcut which is supposed to instantly break out of X Windows and end a lot of processes).

55 54
 That glitch is even worse with virtual LH64_602_B2, since virtual systems run slower than real systems.  And in general in Puppy Linux, that sort of thing seems more likely to happen when running low on RAM - and usually, I don't give my virtual machines as much RAM as I give to my real systems.
56 55
 
57 56
 
58 57
 <br>
59 58
 In similar situations, non-virtual Lucid5284 often used to just instantly close my web browser rather than jamming up my entire computer.  (Except in the cases when it sometimes froze up unrecoverably - which usually seemed to happen when I was running low on RAM - and all I could do was reboot.)
60
-
59
+<br>
61 60
 And even non-virtual Lupu5284 feels quicker and more responsive, while LH64_602_B2 sometimes feels a little laggy to me.  But I'm unusually sensitive to such things, and usually LH64_602_B2 is fine, and still tremendously better than any proprietary OS I've ever used, like Windows XP, Vista, 7, 10, and Mac OS X Lion.
62

61

63 62
 On one of my older desktops, non-virtual LH64_602_B2 did seem faster than Lupu5284 for some things, like some web browsing, except when it got jammed.  But if Lupu5284 could use more than 4 GB of RAM, I might actually switch back to Lupu5284.

 Even my 2008 (giant cheese grater-like)[http://www.souledesigns.com/blog/2013/06/mac-pro-kitchen-nightmare] Mac Pro, with 32 GB of RAM, and eight 2.8 GHz cores, gets jammed up annoyingly often, just by browsing the web in non-virtual LH64_602_B2!  But at least that happens less often and less easily than it does on my less powerful computers.
68
-
67
+<br>
69 68
 I'm not sure it's my web browsers' fault, or something to do with Linux itself.  Or perhaps both.  But at least now I know it's definitely not from not having enough RAM.

 Maybe I should try to find a PAE version - http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PAE - of a 32-bit Puppy Linux which is compatible with Lupu5284, so I can still use my old collections of Lupu5284 software.

 Another annoying glitch in LH64_602_B2 that I haven't figured out how to permanently fix is, sometimes trying to save things in the web browsers Firefox or Pale Moon cause my web browser to freeze up, and then I have to use Pprocess to end their processes.

 That glitch is even worse with virtual LH64_602_B2, since virtual systems run slower than real systems.  And in general in Puppy Linux, that sort of thing seems more likely to happen when running low on RAM - and usually, I don't give my virtual machines as much RAM as I give to my real systems.
