When I run qemu, qemu starts apparently fine, but the qemu window stays
black. So I'm suspecting that either it does not work in Virtualbox or I
may have tochange some settings in qemu (e.g. -vga vmware).
Have you installed the Virtualbox guest additions within your VM?

Fwiw I've not run into any issues doing this with a Fedora 14 and Fedora 16 VM (other than the builds themselves being dog slow). I make sure to install the guest additions in all my VMs.
