hello everyone,

I am very new to ubuntu, infact new to linux system, an absolute beginner.

I have Ubuntu 8.10 Interpid installed. I downloaded Sun xVM VirtualBox and want to host XP in it.

I have a XP PRO bootdisk. Everything worked fine till the partion part during installation. During formatting the partition it freezes. nothing works after that and have to reboot by pressing the power button. I did search about this but couldn't find any answer.

please give me some advise on this. Any help would be much appreciated.

thanks in advance
