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

Actually... no. You can install a 64 bit guest on a 32 bit host,
provided you meet the 3 prerequisites. See the documentation here:
http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch03.html#intro-64bitguests

That said, there is little to no benefit to installing a 64 bit
Windows guest anyway (for almost all use cases), so Eberhard's comment
is still good advice :-)

Well I like a challenge and don't usually give up. Especially with all
you great people helping me. Do I actually burn a DVD with a 32 bit win
7 iso or follow your instructions about putting it in

No need to burn the iso. When you first start the machine after you have set it up and clicked on the green start arrow, you have an option to select the iso image you have downloaded. The default is a burned iso but just alongside that field is a folder icon. Choose that and point it at your downloaded iso.

/home/benjie1/.virtualbox from the 8th one on the list you told me about

NO no no! The guest additions iso needs copying to your .VirtualBox folder in your home directory. It has nothing to do with the windows 7 iso.

. Ready to do either one now. And then I guess I can open VBox. In the
box where it says operating system and below that the version. Is that
the guest or host names that go there. My guess is it is guest. Things
seem to be going well. Thanks Bob
