Hi.
I have the Xubuntu OS ready to install (as it's in a saved state in the program) in Sun VirtualBox. I just want to make sure that's it's safe for my computer to install it. When I was in the Xubuntu partition editor (during the pre-install set up stuff) it showed my 2.5gb (well, it said 2.7gb but I actually gave it 2.5) VBOX HDD, and it's ready to installl, with no problems having come up thus far.

Thanks! If it's safe, please tell me! If it's not, still tell me!!!!


THANKS!!!

SteinPooch.

EDIT: Moved to the Linux forum

You'd be better off posting in the Linux forum.

If I knew how to move it, I would!

Same here man.

And by the way, is the install safe? I don't want to screw up my computer, as I'm getting a Mac in February.

I may be a little late, but if you still haven't already found out yourself, the install's safe. I install OSes to VirtualBox all the time.
