I am running Ubuntu 11.04 as my default OS and would now like to run other Linux Operating Systems from within VirtualBox OSE. So could anyone point me towards an easy to follow tutorial please.

most of what you need to know should be in the virtualisation section.

read the stickies, especially the mega thread.

It is fairly easy.

Enjoy

Virtualbox is actually quite easy and straightforward. Download a distro you want to use, and then make a new entry in Virtualbox. Doubleclick the new entry when done, and select the .iso you downloaded as the source. All should be fine then.

Advice: Never give the virtual machine more than 50% of your RAM.
