Chris, by default we don't start any servers on the disk, as they use up 
valuable memory.
So if you wish to use a WMS in the quickstart, you will need to include 
a step to start a WMS:
Take your pick from:
* Mapserver
* Geoserver
* QGIS_Mapserver
* MapGuide Open Source (I think although haven't tested also has a WMS)
