I'm planning too to try windows on virtualbox.
But I've searched and searched, and can't find any good examples and such, 
how to use vboxmanage and so.
Can you give me step by step guide on how to do it? I've got an iso with 
unattended installation.
I want to enable sound, cd rom support, and usb.
Also, is virtualbox better than qemu?
I tried that, but the machine was so sloww that I could barely run jaws for 
5 seconds before it crashed.
