Does anybody know a small and simple Linux distribution that contains not much more than the "VirtualBox" program? I'd like to set up a machine that actually needs some kind of graphical display plus VirtualBox, which should automatically boot the productive OS as a virtual system.

You can try http://www.slitaz.org and just get virtualbox package which should come with all its dependencies.
