Sure, that will be no problem. Installing in a VM is just the same as if it was a real machine.

Hey

Also the new VB will let you run OSX out of the box. You'll need hardware Virutalization for you processer for it to work though.

sorta....you still need hacked copies of OSX and such to make this work. It's not as simple as putting in a retail disk and installing.
