  • How can I add more storage space to VirtualBox?

    I recently installed Windows XP on a VirtualBox and I made the hard drive only store 10GB since I assumed it would just expand in size (since VMware hard drives do that).

  • Virtualization Product Choices

    I will be setting up my new system in a couple of weeks. I'll be running CentOS 5 on a quad core AMD Opteron. I'm going to run Windows XP as a guest OS, and possibly 1 or more Linux distros. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am currently considering Xen or Virtualbox, leaning towards Xen.
