    I'd want more than 15 GB. How much room do you have to spare? You could also dedicate an entire external hard disk for that OS.

    Is virtual box like VMware where you run an operating system inside an operating system? If so then aparently its terrible to use. Laggy. I'd reccomend installing Leopard on a seperate hard drive or dual boot if your desperate.

    Well your install is going to take up around 8G. You can get away with 15G but I wouldn't recommend it. I partitioned mine at 40G, which left me pretty much equal free space on Vista and Leopard after a clean install of each.
