I had no issues importing my Win2KPro VM guest to my 64bit karmic
laptop. VirtualBox 3.1.2 (PUEL). File|Export Appliance... etc. Copied
the export files over to the 64bit, then File|Import Appliance - worked
w/o issues. Again, I suggest if you have issues w/VirtualBox to try the
VirtualBox list... they are quite helpful on that list.
