Why do you want to install zentyal as guest? why don't you configure Ubuntu itself for samba domain controller (pdc),dhcp,dns,ftp, squid etc and also install windows 2003/2008 as a guest OS...Please read the review of Zentyal http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/11/18/zentyal_review/page3.html

What I meant in my earlier post was I don't recommend Zentyal as guest on Ubuntu. Ubuntu itself can be configured for Samba, dhcp, dns, ftp, Squid etc..
