Hi,
I follow the pdf documentation of virtualbox (www.virtualbox.org/download/UserManual.pdf) :
First I create the share folder :
Code:
vboxmanage sharedfolder add "Windows XP SP2" -name "linux_desktop" -hostpath /home/lyhana8/Desktop/ 

Quote:

Then start my virtual machine :
Code:
$ vboxmanage startvm "Windows XP SP2"

Quote:

Waiting for the remote session to open...
Remote session has been successfully opened.



And when i want to "mount" the folder on my windows guest with :
Code:
net use E: \\vboxsvr\linux_desktop

I get :
Quote:
System error 53 has occured. The network path was not found



more info :
Code:
~$ vboxmanage showvminfo "Windows XP SP2"

Proprietary version vs. Open Source Edition

There are two versions of the VirtualBox software. The full VirtualBox package comes under a proprietary license which allows using the software free-of-charge for personal and educational use and evaluation of the product.[4]

A second version called the VirtualBox Open Source Edition (OSE) was released under the GPL, from which a number of features are missing, which are:[5]

* The built-in Remote Display Protocol (RDP) server.

* USB support (see above) and the combination of running the RDP server with support of remote USB devices.

* Shared folders, with which host directories can be shared with the guest.

* The iSCSI support for virtual hard disks (see above).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtualbox#Proprietary_version_vs._Open_Source_Edition

So i guess this mean we need to UNemerge :
Code:
emerge -C app-emulation/virtualbox   
emerge -C app-emulation/virtualbox-additions

virtualbox-additions block virtualbox-bin emerging.

And then emerge :
Code:
emerge -av app-emulation/virtualbox-bin
