T6 I did as you said and that certainly is an option. But with my luck I would get more than I bargained for. It isn't like I don't have a computer with a Windows O/S on it. There were two reasons (maybe more) that I wanted to do VBox. One was to see if I could learn to do it. With the help of those on this Forum I think I can say "yes". The other was to run Netflix instant movies. So I think I will just use the computer as a test computer. I have a couple computers still running kde 3.5 and need to update programs like FireFox. I can learn how on the test computer and if I mess up, Oh well. A device to watch Netflix movies is cheaper than a Windows O/S. They don't need my money anyway, Tex should get it.
