Fedora 15 is not booting in Virtualbox environment after enabling the shared folder

Hello All,

I am using the F15 with Virtualbox in Windows XP host pc.

F15 fails to boot it stuck during the boot after completing the progress bar 100%. Before this problem occur I have enabled the shared folder in permanent mode in vbox shared folder settings and added the following line in the /etc/fstab file

"ShareVM /mnt/Sharefldr vboxsf defaults 0 0"

If I remove the above line then system boots fine.

Please help!!!
