It should be installed in running guest OS.

Found the following thread:

http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=4646&highlight=unknown
+filesystem+type

see the questions/comments by "vale25". He had a very
similar problem. Eventually he says:
--------------------
Guest Vista
Host openSUSE 10.3
VirtualBox 1.5.6
Shared Folder on host with name btmp and path B:/tmp
Linux folder /home/vale25/btmp

I suceeded to mount as root on openSUSE with:

/sbin/mount.vboxsf -rw btmp /home/vale25/btmp

Suggested command above does not work:

vasuse:/home/vale25 # mount -t vboxvfs btmp /home/vale25/btmp
mount: unknown filesystem type 'vboxvfs'
--------------------
With "find" I am able to find a program named "mountvboxsf",
but for me it does not work..
---------------------
fl-laina-13:/home/sampsa # /usr/sbin/mountvboxsf share paska
/usr/sbin/mountvboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device
----------------------
.. there might be something mixed up in the suse 10.3 rpm's ?
.. like files installed into wrong directories where mount can't
find them?

Sampsa



It seems you are quite confused as to which uses this. It is the quest
that mounts the filesystem _not_ the host. The guest additions are for
the _guest_ *not* the host.

OK! And thanks for clearing my head.. now the shared folder works
ok. ;)

Sampsa
