    Shared Folders - network path not found

    Ok. I've got virtualbox installed and working with a Windows XP installation as a guest and what I'd like to do is this..

    share my /home/user/Music folder with the Guest so that I can use MediaMonkey to manage my music and sync it with my Creative Zen (I just like the way mediamonkey handles it).

    First of all I'm having trouble getting sharing to work at all. I tried first with an empty folder that I created just to test using the documentation here

    Code:
    #mkdir ~/vboxshare
    #VBoxManage sharedfolder add "Windows XP" -name "share" -hostpath ~/vboxshare
    It then shows up under shared folders when I start virtualbox. Then when XP is all booted up I fire up a dos prompt and do

    Code:
    net use x: \\vboxsvr\share
    and get

    System Error 53 has occured. The Network Path was not found

    What am I doing wrong?

    Doh.. I thought since I had a shared folders option I already had guest additions installed.. so I'll update this for those that

    to add Guest Additions go to

    Devices -> Mount CDDVDROM -> CD/DVD-ROM Image

    then navigate to

    /usr/share/virtualbox

    and you'll see VBoxGuestAdditions.iso

    choose that and you're off to the races. Sorry for the post
