I have got VirtualBox running on a Ubuntu 8.10 host, it all runs pretty
smoothly (except for USB).
I ran into this problem when I upgraded and went to the Sun website to
download their version, xVM VirtualBox. I uninstalled the older version
and then used the default installer to install Sun's version. Not only
was XP still in place but I had total USB support and everything works.
A couple of notes;
1. I am not an expert and you might wish to confer with those here that
are before jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.
2. I have yet to install SP3 on my guest system since I seldom use the
XP for more than Solitaire and burning a picture to a CD with Nero.
