Yes. However, it needs kernel modules and the relevant package may lag behind the Debian kernel. Fo rinstance, unstable kernel is currently 2.6.22-3 while avail. package of virtualbox modules only provide 2.6.22-2 So, that means building your own virtualbox modules package, thus have kernel sources, etc, etc. Blah. I sometimes want to be just lazy... This is of course a problem without real solution unless virtual machines software don't use kernel modules..:-) Anyway, apart fro mthat, VirtualBox is currently a very good solution for D-I testers.
