Exclamation Vrtual Box and Ubuntu 64 Host

I'm planning on building a new system late winter or early spring and wanted some feedback into my OS plans. I am planning on using Ubuntu 64 bit as a host and Virtual Box as the V-system then installing Ubuntu 32 bit and Kubuntu 32 bit inside. I will be using a two HDD set-up in RAID 1 {software} configuration. I do not believe the initial set up will pose to many issues but my concern is for upgrades to the various components and keeping the RAID intact and in sync. I would appreciate input from those with experience so I can add notes to the 'build' manual I am composing

Do you mean software or hardware upgrades? I don't think software upgrades will cause any issues; as for hardware upgrades, if you need to change a hard drive, take a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-set...ebian-lenny-p4

Default Opps, Software

Thx Falko for the responce; I have been doing some reading via this site and VBox site. It does appear that if I go about setting everything up correctly from the start then Kernnel update should not be a problem. As for Hardware on the origional post it will all be New Just saving $'s now don't ya know
