I use a linux guest on a linux host.
I set like shared folder my host's root.
But I don't know what device I should use to mount in the guest the host filesystem.
Until now the VB's manual and the VB's forum are useless for my trouble.
If your network is working right you can share files without the guest additions via samba. Just set up your shares and you should be good to go. There is a post in the virtualbox forms that gives instructions for xp, but they worked fine when I setup a win95 guest on a debian host.
