Hello.

I noticed that there is a application called VirtualBox.

I have a old IBM:

Pentium 3 Processor
100 GB drive
256 Kb Memory
300 Kb Swap

Is it possible for me to install VirtualBox and my computer still will go fast?

Thanks

No. Having two OSes (and their apps) running simultaneously is very resource-intensive. If you want to run two OSes on that machine I would advise you to dual-boot.

256 Kb RAM??? Or do you mean 256MB?

256 Mb - 128 Mb at Run

300 Mb swap

Sorry for the mistake

Your primary drawback is low ram. 256 is barely cutting it. I wouldn't run a VM with anything less than 768.
