I have an USB internet key (multimode GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA) that only works on Windows.
Though, I mainly use Linux for development activities and I don't want to move them to Windows. For this reason I decided to use a Windows guest on VirtualBox for internet access and the Linux host for the other stuffs, but I'd greatly prefer to use Linux for everything (internet too) and Windows only as internet gateway.
How could I setup such environment? Any instructions or links to documentation are appreciated.
Host: Ubuntu 10.10 LTS
Guest: Windows XP,
VirtualBox: an old version but I can upgrade.
