By pure coincidence (and because it was announced at cebit) I downloaded 
that appliance yesterday and took it for a first test drive.
First problem: I can't change /etc/resolv.conf, neither as user sernet 
nor as user root nor from a grml-cd. And as the dns resolving is wrong, 
I can't access the appliance from anything but the (virtual) local gui. 
And I can't install/update other packages.
Which leaves me rather clueless with the whole package...

Any advice?

Have fun,
