VirtualBox is great. I run Win XP as a guest on Mepis 8.0 with the following:
product: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz
vendor: Intel Corp.
width: 64 bits
I also use and recommend the guest additions. Depending on what
you're trying to do with Linux you might consider running AntiX. It's
a lightweight respin of Mepis that will run from 64MB old PII 266
systems with pre-configured 128MB RAM on up.
