    But did you get the BitTorrent version? I was just wondering because I got sort of confused. :)

    If you’re having trouble with the ‘cd /media/cdrom’ command, an easier way to get there for folks new to the command line is to type ‘cd’ and then from the Kickoff Application Launcher (start menu) open the File Manager. Assuming you have mounted the guest additions CD image by going to Devices > Install Guest Additions from the VirtualBox menu, you should see the guest additions CD listed on the left. Simply click and drag it to your terminal window. This will autofill the path you’re gonna need to ‘cd’ to.

    Then you can proceed with the rest of the instructions easy-peasy lemon squeezey.

    I’m running Kubuntu 10.04 in VirtualBox, and the cd/media/cdrom command doesn’t work. Help.

      I assume you’ve set the drive up within the VirtualBox settings for your Kubuntu image? You have to specify all hardware that you’d like emulating.
