I am on windows 7 on an amd64 laptop using oracle virtualbox installed 
ubuntu 11.04

Now I have got the password from jdd I tried to do it in opensuse, but 
vboxsf not recognized and installation failed, reinstalling guest 
additions failed.

Lost in the swamp. It is how I started 6 months ago and got it to 
¨work¨. I saw quick that I had to look for a better solution and made a 
dual boot.

I think I better leave it as is and continu not to encourage poeple to 
go this way.
