I'm not a VB developer, nor do I work for Oracle.

I thought the guest os selection is used to decide what logo to show in the
VB window, and determine some of the defaults such as memory size and disk
size to use when creating a new VM.  It doesn't impact how a VM runs.

So if you choose something like "Ubuntu" or other decent linux distro, and
your BlackPanther linux guest is experiencing errors, then adding an icon
for it in VB wont solve the errors.
