Running Vmware Disk in VirtualBox 1.4.0

My Vmware 6 trial is over but I already install FreeBSD 4,5,6 and 7 using it. After have some spare time to test VirtualBox 1.4.0 power ( able running vmdk) I give it a chance.

Generally what I do is adding each disk to disk manager and run that disk.

Here’s the steps :
