Hi Bastian!
I have the same problem.

On an other system (with Ubuntu), it's pretty easy to add a folder.

So you have to install the Guest-Extension (de:Gasterweiterung).
- So you have to mount the cdrom with the iso first.
- Than run Application on the iso-image (./VBoxLinuxApplication.run)
- Restart the guest-system.
- Than it should be possible to add folder via vbox's "shared folders".
- Afterwards you have to mount it this folder

I'm having problems mounting the cdrom...

Perhaps somebody could make a short manual for the greenhorns.
