Installation necessary software under Debian / Ubuntu:
Then we must add kernel support:
Downloading and converting Internet Explorer Virtual PC:
We have almost working Internet Explorer VirtualBox machine. Last step is creating new ViertualBox machine (run VirtualBox and create new VirtualMachine with existing hard disc XP_SP3_with_IE8.vdi).
