Lightbulb I want to install a Centos 5.0 Virtualbox for free where can I get that?


I want to install a Centos 5.0 Virtualbox for Windows 7 x64. Can someone please let me know where I can go to get that, because I would like to have the virtualbox to further understand how LINUX works. I have taken a course in Redhat Enterprise Linux Computing Essentials, and I enjoyed using LINUX. So that is why I am searching for a 5.0 free download of Virtualbox. Thanks you guys for all your help with my questions being answered. I really give credit to those who helped and developed LINUX.

Once it is downloaded, I can't boot any of the OS of LINUX because I get the error message: no bootable medium found! system halted! So what do I do now?

If I have to download a virtual image, does it mater which one I download?

I tried those but do you have to pay for them? Because I'm looking for a free virtual image.
