Yeap just install virtualbox. You can get it either through synaptic package manager are you can also download the debian package for it from VirtualBox.

Then just follow it's simple instructions to create a virtual machine with a virtual hard drive. Once you have the virtual machine and the virtual hard drive it's pretty much no different than installing it as a regular operating system.
