How can I run Windows 8 in a virtual machine?

Which software works (VMWare or VirtualBox)? and what settings should I use? I have tried and failed on both.

    I used virtual box, had to put the 3D rendering on, 4 network card had to put the NAT Intel PRO/1000 on (other settings: 2048 MB mem, 128 MB video mem, 4 CPU's).
    Took me 2 run's to install windows 8 preview, but the 2nd time it did the trick.
    Once booted, I had to increase the screen resolution in windows 8 above 1024 (standard resolution was to low) in order to let the app's work as the should.
    (run's on a intel core i7 - 8GB)
