Good to hear of people finding the solutions they need, especially using 
things like CrossOver.

VirtualBox is a great piece of software and is getting the attention it 
deserves. My only annoyance is that they don't do a 64 bit version, but 
that was only because I wanted to use it in place of the horrible 
Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 at my Tafe class which was using 64bit Windows 
Server 2003. Here at home its a different story :).
