Hi. I want to install debian as a virtualbox guest on a windows7 machine with a 64bit intel processor. Which package should I get? Can I use one of the small cd images?

Assuming your virtual box is in working order: You can use any appropriate Debian install cd/dvd.

AFTER you've installed Debian, be sure to install the virtualbox-ose-guest-addons package; however, IIRC the Debian installer detects it is running under VirtualBox and installs it for you. Doesn't hurt to check.

Are you sure you want to do this?

Installing Debian, which is the more secure OS, in a virtual environment in MS, a less secure OS, seems backwards to me.

Getting the install disk you paid for when you bought the license and installing MS in VB under Debian makes more sense to me.

That license allows you to install MS 4 times on one box. Can be a different box that the original but only one box total. There is no way you can do that without the disk. You paid for the license. Get the disk.

Even if you install the way you are asking about, get the damned disk.

Depends on the purpose, which wasn't stated. I think it's good in a case where someone wants to get their feet wet with Debian but doesn't want to/know how to go through partitioning and such.

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply.

But I went ahead with the net install stable.

Thanks for replies.
