    in VirtualBox, I wanted to install Windows XP. I did so, and I can't use the mouse for it, it comes up with this:

    If clicking inside the virtual box doesn't work, try pressing the right ctrl key (has to be the right one).

    Yes, that's telling you that now that you have pressed the key, your mouse will be "trapped" within the virtual machine until you press the key again to untrap it.

    Yep, that's how the virtual box works.
    You can click the mouse icon on the bottom right and enable mouse integration if you want the mouse to automatically follow the mouse of your Ubuntu though.
