    I've been trying to get Virtual box to work with Ubuntu, but I can't seem to get it to work. I downloaded the Windows XP iso from the Microsoft website and mounted it to it, but I keep getting that there's no bootable media.

    I've been trying to get this to work so that I can run certain windows programs, that will not start with Wine or other wise.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would assume the stuff downloaded from the Microsoft Website would only work with Virtual PC.
    Couldn't get their stuff to work in VirtualBox, but I could get it to work with Virtual PC 2007.
