Hi Joey,

The .Net support in vmkit has moved to an experimental state and much of 
the development in vmkit currently targets the Java frontend. So you can 
skip configuring pnet and only use the JVM in vmkit with GNU Classpath. 
However, if you're still interested in running .net apps, you can use 
mono instead of pnet (which in my experience will be easier to 
configure) and "patches are welcome" :)
