I have an x86 machine running Ubuntu and i just installed Virtualbox

I noticed that Mac OSx is one of the options for guest

Does that mean i can install and run Mac OSx through Virtualbox on my x86 machine?

This page (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=67786) might help you, or look around Google for 'OS X virtualbox'. It looks like you can do it, but not easily. Also keep in mind that it's officially illegal to run OS X on any computer or other hardware that was not manufactured by Apple (because how would Mac users maintain their elitist culture, and how would Apple continue to monopolize its market, if OS X would run on any computer, not just overpriced hardware sold by Steve Jobs?), even if you have a perfectly valid and legal copy of OS X.
