    I've not ever used Virtualbox, but from their website:

    Go to System > Administration > Software Sources and add this repo:

    deb http://www.virtualbox.org/debian gutsy non-free

    Save this key to your machine and add it (under "authentication")

    Fire up Synaptic, hit reload, and you should be able to get virtualbox

    Actually, hang on. This page says it's in the universe repo for Gutsy. Do you have universe enabled?

    I downloaded the deb file from their site - http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

    Installed that and then started it - then hit New and filled in the boxes as I needed - virtual os etc

    Then start actually starts the virtual os - at that point it will need to have the os you want to run as virtual installed.

    I also installed the guest additions which can make life a bit easier - it's in the devices tab of the virtual machine

    And that was it - I've not bothered with usb support in there - but there are threads here documenting it.

    Ok, no probs. Everybody was a newbie once, even Linus Torvalds

    You might want to go to this guide to Synaptic. Add the universe repository, reload Synaptic and try searching for Virtualbox again.
