Hey I'm getting ready to buy a netbook, and I need Windows and primarily Ubuntu. It's PERFECT if I can have Windows XP installed on an SD card (8Gb) that I can boot from, and ALSO that I can run from within Ubuntu (using the SD card). Currently I use VirtualBox, but it seems like it can only work with particular image files and not boot from partitions? Is there any way around this? I recall doing this booting GNU/Linux using Xen: is Xen necessary? Also what is the best SD card I can chose, and how likely will it be busted within the year? (that is the main thing. in any case I'll be prepared for it) Has anyone setup Windows XP on an SD card?
