Mount Guest CD

# cd /mnt
# mkdir cdrom && mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
# cd cdrom && ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

Get shared folder name from VB

# mkdir /mnt/shared
# mount -t vboxsf vm.share /mnt/shared

1.2.2. Shared folder - method #2
# usermod -aG vboxsf kkim

Reboot, and the shared folder will be mounted at /media/sf_vm.share/
If didn't work, try this:

# mount.vboxsf vm.share /media/sf_vm.share/


1.3. mount shared folder automatically at boot
# vi /etc/rc.local
