Anyhow, a few quick hits. First, I installed VirtualBox, and immediately went for Fedora 11 from RedHat. Never could get Fedora to see the virtual drives I had created. I switched from Fedora 11 to the latest version of Ubuntu and it works fine.
Second, I was working on creating a shared folder on my Windows host that could be seen by the Linux box, using the provided command:
mount -t vboxsf [-o OPTIONS] sharename mountpointThis was returning an error that it did not know about vboxsf as a type. I found that the 'missing' step was, once you install the 'Guest Additions', to issue the following command on your guest Linux server...
This will let Ubuntu know about the vboxsf type.
I'm liking VirtualBox so far, it appears to be a useful tool in the toolbox.
