I have recently done this, but found an odd thing. I chose to try Zone 
Alarm for the virtual box XP, and it would not install.
There is a  lot on the internet suggesting that zone alarm is very 
picky about installing sometimes, but I ended up using Sygate personal 
firewall (spf.exe) ultimately. Although you may decide your 
installation will stay away from the internet!
