kim88 Many thanks

Amnon82 Yes, but I am running paldo as a guest in a WindowsXP host, and
I want the additions in this guest, not the next one down the line

Could not the paldo distro have the linux Guest Additions pre-loaded

I am using VB 1.5, I have had problems with later versions, even VB had
problems with 1.6.2

I partitioned the VB Hard Disk (8GB) 7.5GB ext2, 500MB Linux swap and
set memory at 256MB (half my total memory), and paldo is painfully slow

Well I've I use paldo as host and run paldo as guest in it also it is fast as I use it installed. Maybe Windows uses the power of the pc different.

Amnon82 My host WinXP only has 512MB of Memory and the C Drive only had
37MB free space (200MB is the minimum required)

Since your post I've done a clean install of WinXP 1.8GB free space,
but the memory is still a problem

Many thanks
