Mount VirtualBox shares under Ubuntu guest

Scenario:

Snow Leopard (Mac OSX) as host, Ubuntu 9.10 as guest (Virtual Box virtualization).

I want to share files from Leopard to Ubuntu.

  1. Create a shared folder in VirtualBox — Ubuntu guest settings
  2. Create mount directory in ubuntu
    sudo mkdir /mnt/Downloads
  3. Mount share (created in step one)
    sudo mount.vboxsf Downloads /mnt/Downloads/
