Installing VirtualBox guest addons
As I said earlier, you'll also want to "install" virtualbox-guest-additions-iso. Actually, all you're really doing is downloading a file. Once you have XP, or another guest operating system installed, you'll use this file to add additional functionality to your new VM.
Once installed, you can find the VirtualBox program from the Linux Mint Menu by starting to type its name into its top window. Then double click on the icon and in a few seconds you'll see...
The Main VirtualBox menu
Here, you click on the New icon and you then select the operating system you want to install. In our case, that's Windows XP. Give it a name, XP for example, and then hit the next button.
