i want to virtualize winxp on 7.10. i went to the downloads page at sun because i guess the original dl's got moved from virtualbox.org and there is no 7.10 available for 32-bit intel systems just amd64. softpedia just redirected me to the virtualbox website. so my question is what i the easiest way to get virtualbox to run on my system? no torrents are available, at least from what i could find. any help would be much appreciated. i'm pretty noobish when it comes to virtualbox/linux emus. i've installed it with parallels on mac but i've read vbox is the shiz.

plz plz help!:guitar::confused:

if you want to run vbox you'll need the any-any patch for it.

however on the 7.10 commercial repos you have vmware-server there which you can install easily.

any-any patch? Isn't that only for vmware? Sorry if I'm mistaken.

yeah, confused that ;)

any-any patch is for vmware...

but there was some obstacle with vbox also... if I only remembered what it was ;)
