Since a Virtual Box install lets you try and try again with no real down side why not do this and find out?
Here, I didn't need to find any drivers. The host virtual box provides all I need.
I've recently retired from 36 years as a Biomed Eng for the VA and was thinking of using some of my newly acquired free time to play around with Linux on a virtual machine on my HP AMD Athlon II dual core machine with 6gig of 800MHZ DDR and Vista Home premium 64. VirtualBox seems to be a good option though I know very little about it. I have what I assume are classic newbie questions. Does it eliminate device driver collections for the guest OS to work with the physical machine or must one get all the guest OS specific physical device drivers for functionality of video board etc in the guest OS? That seems to be the biggie for someone like me as I'm pretty sure the machine is robust enough to support a guest OS or 2.
