what do you mean by "and other image labeled live-rw (with an ext2 fs)"?
It should work booting the virtualbox VM with the live cd, a partition
disk labeled live-rw, and adding a boot option "persistent".
I'm not using the latest sid version and I know there have been some
recent changes about persistence. The debian image is sid? wheezy?
squeeze? If the image is not sid the usual way should work.
