"Here is your perfect solution with just ""NAT"".

Quoted verbatim from http://blogs.oracle.com/tao/entry/virtual_box_shared_folder_between:


Add folder(s) to shared folder menu.

It is important to write down the folder names at this step.
Boot guest system, open a terminal and type in the following commands

sudo mkdir /mnt/tao_xp
sudo mount.vboxsf TAO /mnt/tao_xp



The shared folder would be accessible now: read & write!"
