    I think you're doing the sensible thing.

    You coose the secure, stable OS for the host system, and the one that's more likely to crash for the guest

    That sounds fun

    Do i just have to edit the distribution info in synaptic to start playing with Karmic development?

    Not concerned if i break it.

    Yup, just do a Search and Replace for jaunty and change to karmic.

    aptitude/synaptic update, and there you go.
