Well, Since I cant run Windows 7 Because I dont have a 64 Bit CPU, I was wondering if there was anyway to get windows XP or windows vista for the virtual box without having to buy the actual CD's. If anyone knows of a way, heelp :)?

You can download a free trial of 32-bit Windows 7 from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/get/download.aspx

Be quick though, downloads are only available until the 20th.

Virtual Box does not get you Windows for free. If you want to get Winodws for free, try googling Windows torrent (http://www.google.co.uk/#hl=en&q=Windows+torrent&btnG=Google+Search&meta=&aq=f&fp=1b311284ac0b25f6). Before using a torrented version of Windows, however, you should make sure that it is covered by the terms and conditions of your Windows license.
