There is no such thing as a "light" distro, if you want a desktop and a web
browser with flash, etc.  Your probable choices for a user-interface desktop
would be Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint.

You're running the linux machine in the VM guest, right?  Not the host?
Make sure you install VirtualBox Tools (or whatever they're calling it now)
into the guest OS.  Then you shouldn't have any display sizing or
performance problems.
