Yes. But do not forget:
First, virtualbox will need to start without errors, then the next steps will be easy...
So you possibly might have to use the /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup procedure that hat been described before.

And the guest iso ... I have win 7 64
bit and this openSuse I'm using is a 32 bit version. So wich
win 7 do I get for the .iso 32 bit to match openSuse or 64
bit which I have on a separate HD.

You will need to have a win7 32bit iso in order to use win 7 inside virtualbox running on top of Suse 32bit.

Kind regards

Things are going great so far. VBox started without errors, and it installed the extension pack successfully. Have not pressed start button yet. Two questions: First. In the box where you put the name of the VBox you want to use, below it are two boxes, one for operating system, the other for version. Is this for the guest or host OS? And second, How can I find out if I'm part of a user group. Saw that mentioned somewhere and not sure if it did that already or if I have to do it myself. Now I need to get an .iso of win7. Back later. Thanks. Bob
