Virtual Box setup


I have Virtual box installed, but I would like it to "boot" Windows XP on my other HDD. However, it doesnt seem to see the other drive. What do I need to do?

Not that I know of. Given it says it supports Windows, I assumed it would automatically support NTFS.

OK, I'm getting the following message. Given it isn't a text file, it won't let me open it with a text editor.
Quote:
The VirtualBox kernel driver is not accessible to the current user. Make sure that the user has write permissions for /dev/vboxdrv by adding them to the vboxusers groups. You will need to logout for the change to take effect..
VBox status code: -1909 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_ACCESSIBLE).

I had this problem as well, and it was as simple as adding the user to the vboxusers group.
