    Default Virtual Box -- running duplicates

    Can I copy my virtual box VM windows XP virtual-machine files to another Linux computer and run the machine on that computer while I keep on running it on the original computer?

    This question is about technical possibilities, not licences.

    (I'm aware of licencing issues and will act appropriately, I have five unused XP licences)

    One method is mentioned in the instructions on duplicating the "disks" -
    copying to another instance of Virtualbox is just duplication.

    The other method is copying the whole Virtualbox environment and
    configuration to another machine and then installing VB (which is
    essentially the same as changing between OSE and non-OSE).
