Virtual Box does not require such a conversion it can use vmdk directly.

Those data sets are slated to be replaced as soon as we get around to it
with a generic osm dump (for this year it's barcelona) called something
like city.osm. Any volunteers?

There have been some previous posts in regards to this, and discussion
that you may need to change the port number to something above 1000 for
it to work.

Headless(Actuall all forms) Vbox supports Remote Desktop out of the box
there is no need for ssh, please see virtual box docs for how to do
this. Also if you add the virtual-box-utils package inside the vm your
can mount host directories inside the vm and copy/paste between host/client.
