Well you guys a far too slow. :-) I had to figure it out myself. But
to give us all a break I kind-of had an idea and it seems to work.
Form the host:
mknod tty9 c 4 9
I then entered the guest and was able to "service asterisk start". I
don't know if it is really _working_, verses just running, but I can now
proceed to the next steps.
