    I am running Ubuntu through Virtualbox. I downloaded the ISO file from the website but where is it located? I look in the disk image but there are hundreds of folders. Can someone help me?

    I'm not sure what your question is. If you are talking about finding the Ubuntu ISO on OSX, it is where ever you saved it. If you are talking about finding the Ubuntu ISO in Ubuntu in VirtualBox, you'll have to do something like put it in a shared folder. First make sure you have the guest additions installed. Then created a shared folder and name it something like virtual_shared and link it to a real folder in OSX. Open up a terminal and type
    Code:
    mkdir virtual_shared
    sudo mount -t vboxsf virtual_shared virtual_shared/
    
    In OSX, drag the ubuntu ISO to the virtual_shared folder, then you can access it from Ubuntu.

    Otherwise I'm not sure what you're asking, sorry.
