    Hi,

    i migrated to linux while ago, but i had to use few windows only applications that i could not make thme work with wine.

    just installed virtualbox 2.02 + xp oem came with my laptop, but i could not activate & ms didn't let me activate either.

    would it possible, perhaps, to mod bios files of virtualbox to preactivate just like vmware?

    thank you for your kind supports!

    i think linux version of virtuabox can be modded but you need to search virtuabox forums
