On that link that monkeybrain2012 posted, I had to click on the link where it said so and so had a compiled version with all the libs in it and the networking patch - it's kind of in the middle of a paragraph as you read. I did not install any of the other packages. As monkeybrain2012 pointed out in his last post above - it's the DOWNLOAD text that shows in that paragraph.
Thanks monkeybrain2012 for all of your great help!
OK I downloaded it and got a setup.exe file which virtual box won't accept. I am sorry to be so dumb but nothing I try with android works.
I downloaded from the download link in the paragraph below on this web page
The official Android-X86 builds do not have Ethernet support, so you won't have an Internet connection while running Android-X86 in VirtualBox. You can, however, use a custom Android-X86 4.0.4 RC2 build that adds Ethernet support: DOWNLOAD (thanks to Ron M for this build!).
I think you got the correct download - just go to the
Download for VirtualBox
section and download the ISO as you noted from Ron M. via he big red download right in front of it on the same line. You are actually making a completely new vm that only has android in it - don't try to install it in something like a vm running Windows.

when I click on the download I get an exe file not an iso I am about to give up a week of total frustration
can you please post the link I find nothing on the page saying download from sendspace
Clicking the link for Ron M's build should take you to http://www.sendspace.com/file/t5a3aj.
I haven't tried that .iso yet, but I'm downloading it now, and it's definitely an .iso.
Jane, stop this crazy thing!
