VirtualBox launcher menu in Fluxbox - Why not?

Probably the greatest idea I ever had in this week - a VirtualBox VM launcher right inside a Fluxbox menu !

All menu items will launch either VBoxManage, the rdesktop-vrdp/rdesktop client or the headless front-end so it's really not as interactive as you would expect. Script that will generate the (sub)menu file can be found here.
After downloading, place it in a folder and execute it after setting the permission bits. Your menu file will be found at ~/.fluxbox/VBoxMenu . Include this in your main menu file and you are done.

VirtualBox Windows XP AHCI drivers

For everybody trying to install XP on a VirtualBox SATA harddrive, here's the floppy image containing the drivers :

Unzip and mount the image in the virtual floppy drive. Press F6 during install and select Intel ICH8M-E/M SATA
Tested on VirtualBox 3.2.10.

Or you can get the same drivers sans the ready-made image from Intel's site.
