Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Virtual Machine

I wanted to create a DOS VM to allow people to play Infocom's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Interactive Fiction Game as it was originally designed to be played. The recently rehashed web-based versions available online which include additional graphics and maps I find to be a little tacky and lend to removing the player from their own imagination. This can also be done with other DOS emulators and the original floppy images, but I think grabbing VirtualBox, and firing up a 3MB VM is a little easier for most people than setting up DOSBox and wrangling the files; Free to illegally download due to the inclusion of MS-DOS.
