If you install the Guest Additions (under the Devices menu) to the Virtual Box, the integration with the Host OS is a little nicer, no more mouse capture, full screen mode, plus some other little tricks.


You can set VirtualBox's CD-ROM drive to an ISO image (though to install on OS, it would have to be a bootable ISO image).

The easiest way to run Linx on VB is to look for pre-made VirtualBox images with the Linux distro of your choice (I'm sure they exist for Ubuntu).
