Discussions related to using VirtualBox on Linux hosts.
I want to have an XP machine start automatically when Ubuntu boots up. I have searched and searched and been unable to get this to work. The command "VirtualBox" will start the program, but will not start the machine. I am a relative Linux newb. Any help is appreciated.

Use the proper command, as written in the Manual: VBoxManage startvm <vmname>.
