VirtualBox and Windows 7 on Ubuntu 10.04

This document assumes you have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) with all of the Statistics department improvements as described here, and now you want virtual Windows.

This script will install a recommended version of VirtualBox. There are no changes necessary to the BIOS settings on a Dell Optiplex 780 to run Windows 7 Pro.
More information on VirtualBox, including good documentation, can be found here and in google:

Please contact the Statistics computer staff for advice.
