As Trev points out, virtualbox-ose should be available to you.

But since you want USB support, you should visit, and 
find the non open source version, add the deb url to your sources.list and 
then install the latest virtualbox.

I often run windows xp 32 bit inside virtualbox, and i dont see any delays 
at all, but i usually give 1 GB of ram to virtualbox machines.
