Virtual Box

Hi guys, I'm new to Linux, long time Windows user. Linux Light looks really good, very easy to get around in. I still need to run Windows apps for work. I'm wondering if you have a 'walk through' on how I can install Virtualbox or any other good VM software so I can run up a few Windows machines.

The more pictures and hand holding the better ;-)

Thanks again.

I ran into an odd situation today when I installed Virtualbox on a fresh install of LL2.2. I installed virtualbox from the "Install Additional Software" in the system menu. When I finish installing it says virtualbox can be found in the menu under system. I look and it is not there, so I open Install/Remove Software and type virtualbox in the search box and find that it didn't install the gui. I install the gui "virtualbox-qt", close the package manager and start a backup copy of a virtual machine with win xp on it, and i get an error telling me it can't find the kernel module. After closing virtualbox I reopen the package manager and install "virtualbox-dkms", I was not sure this would fix the problem, but it seems to have worked. I was able to start up my virtual xp and haven't had any problems yet.

Hopefully this will help others with this problem.
I have not failed. Ive just found 10,000 ways that wont work. - Thomas Edison
