I found the VirtualBox  to be like Vmware workstation
so if you how know to use that you will be right at home with VirtualBox

onto the hit list of what we need

what we need

    -> VirtualBox  ::   about 10 MB
    -> and test CD  / ISO file (something small and easy and light to install )
    -> 5 GB of hdd space
    -> root user access
    -> 300 MB of free memory
    -> about 45mins
    -> some nice music to listen to ( if you like :) )
    -> kernel source / devel files
    -> User Manual :: about 2.1 mb



tested on
    -> FC 6 32 bit
    -> CentOS
    -> RedHat (should work on this because the Centos and Fedora are based on RedHat)
    -> Opensuse ver 10.2 (32bit)
