Urgent-mount


I'm new to linux
I've installed linux on vBox and wanna share a folder from the host windows and see it in linux guest. I've created a transient shared folder called linux and a folder called share in /mnt. Then typed the command "mount -t vboxsf linux share". But it says "mount: unknown filesystem type 'vboxsf'" could anyone help me?
Also when I created a folder called cdrom in /mnt and typed " mount /dev/cdrom mnt/cdrom", I got "mount: mount point mnt/cdrom does not exist"
Could anyone help me?
