A simple non technical guide to installing an LMDE guest on a Windows 7 host computer.
These videos are aimed at children, young people, new Linux users or folk like me that do not understand manuals.
They have no sound, you just need to watch, we haven't got talkies in the UK yet
Due to problems I was having with Virtualbox version 4 I have remade the videos using Virtualbox 3.2

When I am satisfied with the quality of these videos and can't improve them any more I will put them on youtube so if anyone has any suggestions, particularly problems when using them please, please tell me.
I do realize that the majority of folk using the videos are not registered forum members and therefor can't post but perhaps if you enjoy LMDE as much as we all do then it just might be worth registering and posting a comment, good or bad.
