Thanks, guys. :-)  I used David's method in the end - partly because it came 
in first, but also because virtualbox is clearly in one of the other 
repositories, and I wasn't sure how to make sure that the correct one was 
used.

It seems to have worked a treat.  But I did first purge everything of 
virtualbox that I could find.  It then installed rapidly and easily.  And 
Windows XP went on without a problem.
