Learn how to install and update Ubuntu 9.10 in Virtual, and how to install Flash player in Ubuntu.
Virtual Box is a free virtualization player for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaria. You need a CPU which was made in the last few years like AMD Athlon, Intel Pentium 4, or Newer. I recommend you have at least 1GB of RAM for Windows XP and 2GB for Vista or Windows 7(it will work on 1GB, but it might lag). You can use Virtualbox to emulate/virtualize Windows or Linux inside a virtual hard drive you need to create.
Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux distros. in the world. If you know how to use Windows, you should be able to learn how to use Ubuntu in a few hours or so.
You will need a
700 MHz x86 processor 384 MB of system memory (RAM) 8 GB of disk space Graphics card capable of 1024x768 resolution Sound card A network or Internet connection
to idealy use Ubuntu.
Virtualization is great for testing new operating systems without making another partition or installing another drive to run it. It also keeps your host operating system safe from viruses, so it is good for testing unknown dangerous software or websites, and studying how a virus infect a computer within a virtual OS. Vb can also be set up to run an firewall Linux distro like Smoothwall, IPcop, etc.
In theory, a Virtualize OS can not infect a host operating system like Windows XP, but it is still a good idea to practice good web browsing habits and downloading software from reliable and safe websites since installing Ubuntu or some other OS on virtual box can take an hour or more (not including the customizations).
If you know how to install Ubuntu, you know how to install it on Virtual Box. All you need to do is go to settings of your machine and set the CD to point to your Ubuntu ISO or Ubuntu CD drive with the Ubuntu CD built into it.
Once you installed Ubuntu, you should update it. If you want to install Flash. Use Firefox, and go to youtube.com. Lastly, try to watch a video. The video will have a link to adobe where you can install flash.
