Not sure about VirtualBox, but it's super easy with VMware Fusion v4.1 (released last week).
On Thursday VMware released Fusion 4.1, an update to its $50 virtualization software that adds numerous small improvements—and a huge, unheralded change that could provide Mac users with much more flexibility when it comes to running old versions of Mac OS X.
The features documented in the Fusion 4.1 release notes include support for full-screen mode on Lion (including a “Smart Full Screen” mode that doesn’t leave users of multiple-display Macs out in the cold), performance and graphics improvements, and support for Lion features such as FileVault 2 and Lion Recovery. But one big change with this update isn’t documented anywhere: The software has been modified so that it will run the non-server versions of Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6) and Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5)
. Previously, VMware Fusion supported virtual Macs running Lion, Lion Server, Snow Leopard Server, and Leopard Server. (Source

Virtualbox will hog the resources like a beast and its not the best to run it whereas VMWare Fusion will handle it no problem!

That didn't last long!
VMware has reversed course on allowing users to virtualize client installs of Mac OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard. The company made a short post on its blog late Monday acknowledging the extra client support that appeared in Fusion 4.1, but claimed the software's previous checks for the server editions of those operating systems had been left out. VMware therefore plans to issue an update that will once again restrict users to installing only Leopard Server, Snow Leopard Server, Lion, or Lion Server. (Source

I've been using VirtualBox on Snow Leopard (10.6.8) - have to download it separately though, it's definitely not on the retail disk. Check for lates version on virtualbox.org
