When I fire up the virtualbox VM Centos starts as I would expect, but  
when I try to use yum list updates (or any of several other yum  
command I've tried) I get a repo error - "
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Could not retrieve mirrorlist  
http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=6&arch=i386&repo=os error was
14: PYCURL ERROR 6 - "Couldn't resolve host 'mirrorlist.centos.org'"
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base

I looked in the repo.d and the base CentOS-Base.repo suggests that if  
the mirrorlist= does not work I should try the commented out baseurl=  
instead. But I don't seem to have nano and can't install it - yum  
install fails as above.
