Re: transfering complete system to another PC

This is the great thing about Mint, it detects the new hardware and should work out of the box doing this.

Re: Installing virtualbox in Helena

Have you added yourself to the vboxuser group?

If so, open a terminal and issue this command

Re: Helena live CD boot problems

Look at this site, and try that example they show, as in adding
vga=771
to the boot parameters.
If this does not work, try some of the other options mentioned on that site.

Re: YAN - Yet Another Newbie

You need to install the closed version directly from Virtualbox.org and install that to get USB working.
Windows should detect it as an ipod, if I am not mistaken.
