XP in a virtual Leenuks enviroment?

Has anyone here run XP successfully on a Leenuks virtual host? If so, did you have any any OS validation problems?

Run Win2k, XP, Vista and Win7 in Oracles Virtual Box on Ubuntu... Issues are with 3D acceleration - still at development.. And yes, you have to activate it and then take a 'snapshot' of it after, to keep it 'as is'....
I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...

It's already activated, I'm just trying to avoid learning the hard way that XP senses the virtual environment as a new PC and insists on being re-activated.

It will because it is different hardware as far as XP is concerned. Why is everyone spending hours and hours on going around the few tens of bucks XP license when they can easily fill that with work enough to buy the license. It's really beyond me...

You're assuming.
