    1. Add the Sun VirtualBox repository.
      Copy/Paste the following lines in the file in /etc/zypp/repos.d/Sun_VirtualBox.repo

      Code:
      [Sun_VirtualBox]
      name=Sun VirtualBox
      enabled=1
      autorefresh=0
      baseurl=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/opensuse/11.2/
      path=/
      type=rpm-md
    2. Install VirtualBox with the following command
      sudo zypper in VirtualBox
    3. Choose XP while creating a Virtual Machine.
    4. Boot the Virtual Machine from XP CD or ISO image and install as you would do on a computer.

    Actually, to install the latest VirtualBox version from the Sun repository, you have to specify:

    zypper in VirtualBox-3.1

    Otherwise, it will install VirtualBox-3.0 (which is OK too).
