    I installed the binary version and I don't see a shortcut to run it. When I type in virtualbox at the terminal I get this:

    The program 'virtualbox' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose
    bash: virtualbox: command not found

    Type "VirtualBox"

    You will see shortcut in gnome menu after relog.

    Okay so the binary version has the V and B capitalized?

    I typed that and it started but 98 is still slow for some reason. Has anyone here tried running 98 in VirtualBox?

    Are you running on Intel VT/AMD Vx or Just emulated VM?

    Most (except older) Core 2 processors supports Intel VT technology.
    You can just go in to BIOS settings and enable VT.

    VT will allow Virtual machine directly work on your CPU.
    Instead of emulated one by your OS.

    Then, you can enable VT/VTx under settings of VM in VirtualBox.

    Does 98 need VT? But 2000 and XP don't?

    I have an T5800.

    VT is for every guest OS.
    It will just boost your VM performance.

    But I don't think Mobile processors have VT technology.
    5800 don't have VT.
    And Virtualization will be slower on mobile processor, they have lesser L2 Cache.

    I still don't see why this new Laptop cannot run Windows 98 when I had low end computers do it.

    Older OS doesn't support Newer technology and vise versa. <_<
