ReactOS - Not quite there yet?

After doing my OS X updates, I installed ReactOS in Parallels. Install is reminiscent of Win2K, starts off with a blue text-only menu system, then goes through a GUI configuration after reboot. The splash screen is nifty, if nothing else.

The first thing I noticed was the lack of a web browser. I FTP'd down the Mozilla Firefox 3.0.4 Win32 installer, which ran fine. Trying to launch Firefox, however... BONK!

Maybe I need to try ReactOS on a real computer. It wouldn't be the first time something hasn't run quite right for me in a VM, but works perfectly well on a clunky old Pentium 3. More to come, I'm sure.
