I am using a MacBook Air. Its got a 60gb harddrive. I want to install VirtualBox so I can run Horizon, Modio, and Usb XTAF explorer. I've tried using Crossover (I don't know how it works :(. I tried using unpkg and dragging and dropping the install items to where the install would put them, but I can't edit those files without authentication, which requires administrator permissions. Please help me? :)

VirtualBox and Crossover are two quite different things. Which one do you want to install? –  patrix Oct 7 '12 at 15:43

Well if you don't have the admin rights, ask the admin to do the installation. Because the rights are required ...

Some people have administrators who are afraid of technology. –  tkbx Dec 12 '12 at 13:59
