I have PCLOS2010 running successfully in a VBOX window while running Windows XP (upgraded to latest updateds) as the host. It appears that I also have guest additions running too.
My problem is I now want to set up shared folders so that my PCLOS2010 can access a folder on my local hard drive E: I have set up the shared folder by clicking the shared folder icon, and adding the desired folder under "Machine Folders", but that doesn't seem to do anything or change anything when I go into Dolphin or Konquerer -- the shared folders don't appear.
I am gathering from the help files in VBOX that a mount command needs to be issued, but the command specified in the help file, "mount -t vboxsf [-o OPTIONS] sharename mountpoint" does not seem to do anything other than give me:
mounting failed with the error: No such file or directory
Can anyone suggest the proper way to do this?
