Description Shawn Debnath 2015-08-02 02:14:57 UTC
Based on conversation with bsdx on #bhyve, the handbook chapter can use a little bit of help: 
- add information about how to run openbsd as a guest
- explain (not just have examples) about the *loader + bhyve + destroy workflow to help newcomers 
- what goes into a map file
- highlight sysctl settings early on, possibly with explaination why
- potentially add an errors section with steps to resolve so google search results can yield good value

Allan, would this be easy to merge?  If not I can do it from your chapter.
