[ovs-discuss] Help Connecting Switch to VMs

I am trying to set up an Open vSwitch configuration where OVS is 
installed on a virtual machine and other virtual machines connect to it. 
I am using Virtual Box. Because I have only begun to study networking, 
this is naturally difficult for me. After reading the documentation, I 
still cannot figure out how to connect a port from the virtual switch to 
a port on another virtual machine. The switch vm has a host-only network 
to my machine and the other vm's are connected to the switch via an 
internal network (http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html has a 
description of these network types).

I would appreciate if anyone could give me some advice without, if 
possible, the assumption I know a lot about networking.

Thank you,
