Huh? Why on earth would you even suggest that?
WinXP/Win2K/Win7 runs just fine in virtualbox (PUEL). Thomas obviously
has other issues: "And I reinstall my ubuntu after installing the XP.
Now they run both very well."
@Gary/OP: if you have a valid WinXP install CD, install virtualbox:
(follow the instructions)
Fire up VirtualBox (Applications|System Tools|Sun VirtualBox| and click
'Help|Contents' to get started.
