Description

Hi, I have had VirtualBox (I call it VBox for short) since I installed Ubuntu on my Toshiba Satellite laptop. Unfortunately, the processor on that pc is a 32 bit so I either use another pc for it or I just look around Microsoft Virtual PC (of which I don't like as much as VBox as it only uses one core). Nevertheless, on another pc of mine (of which I am very proud to say that I use XP embedded and the only app I use on it VBox and (rarely) VPC) I have set up Ubuntu 6.10 (I have a 8.10 disc but has no live cd function) with VBox with four hdds (one of the 4 are SATA-controlled)-- 3 at 150gb and my main one 200gb.

Ok, nuff said, here's my question to anybody who could do a bit of special coding for me, or the VBox team can do it in their next update: is there anything I can do to be able to use a partition on my host pc as a hdd or partition on any guest pc? Thanks. =)

P.s. I am not 100% sure what version my VBox is, as I am not at a pc at the moment (in case you're wondering, I'm at a blackberry) and I DEFINENTLY don't have the latest version but I've probaly got one of the latest 4 to 5 versions. Ill just say I have ver 2.1.2 for the moment.
