trouble trying to install windows xp alongside ubuntu 11.10
I have ubuntu11.10 on a whole partition and have decided to install windows xp as a virtual pc, I assume this means alongside ubuntu. apparently I must get virtualbox to partition the system first.
My overall aim is to use ubuntu for my main system and pop back to windows occasionally. When I installed ubuntu I was sure I,d not need windows so I wiped it clean.
when I go to try and instal virtualbox,to create a partition for the windows OS, I dont understand how to instal virtualbox ? It says
" The package architecture has to match the Linux kernel architecture, that is, if you are running a 64-bit kernel, install the appropriate AMD64 package (it does not matter if you have an Intel or an AMD CPU). Mixed installations (e.g. Debian/Lenny ships an AMD64 kernel with 32-bit packages) are not supported. To install VirtualBox anyway you need to setup a 64-bit chroot environment."
My system is a 32 bit.
I have tried following questions related to "how toinstall virtualbox" but I cant undrstand those either.
