Virtualbox Networking problem

Alright, so I followed these steps to set up a virtual windows drive

I have 2 problems with this now, the 1st problem is that I cannot get the right-control key to bring back my mouse, and the second problem is that now my ubuntu os will not connect to the internet

I am dual booting windows on a seperate hard drive and can connect to the internet fine through there.

any help would be much appreciated!

I installed VBox on XP with Feisty as the guest with no problems - I found the included User Guide very good. Perhaps you should have a look at that.

Later a mate used Feisty as the host and successfully got both Vista and XP running as guests; again using just the User guide.

Can't explain either problem you are seeing.
