Ok, you need to download Ubuntu 10.10

Use this direct link: http://releases.ubuntu.com/10.10/ubu...ktop-amd64.iso

Install that in your VM, then you can start @ step 11

Code:
11 - After a prompt to restart, you should boot right into Ubuntu.

If you sit there and stare at it for a minute or so, this might pop up.. Select "Don't Upgrade" We just installed 10.10 because it works faster for Folding at Home!

When creating a new vm, there should be an option to select the bootable device, select the iso you just downloaded. Make sure to give it at least 2GB of ram, and to select 4 cores. If it yells at you about not being able to install a 64bit OS then you will have to enable virtualization in BIOS.
