I can install Ubuntu 0904 successfully in the VB. The same WindowsXP iso can be installed successfully on another X86 box.

You might want to decrease the amount of guest RAM for this VM. Solaris hosts require a lot of memory. 384 MB RAM are normally enough for a Windows XP guest. You might increase the amount of swap space on your host as well, AFAIR there is a bug in some Solaris releases accounting swap space twice.
