I run WinXP SP3 on my Virtual Box (3.2.10) under OSX 10.6.2 and the harddrive of the virtual box is getting too small.
- extend exiting hdd somehow?
- create new Virtual Box from a running computer? (Virtual Box in my case?)

Process using only vboxmanage(which you already have if you have vbox) to make a new larger image and cloning the data across os here: http://alittletothewright.com/index.php/2009/11/expanding-virtualbox-dynamic-vdis/. you can then use the windows partitioning tools to expand the partitions.
There are several things you can do to increase the size of your disk (like booting GParted and increasing the partition size) but I'd recommend the following:
If your VM has a Windows OS, it may be that you now have 2 partitions on the new disk. You can use the Windows interface or DiskPArt to merge them, if you'd like.
