WOOW ! It's nice to have such a positive feedback from you, but (!)
according to this page, Syllable doesn't works on VirtualBox at all:
I have tested: "Syllable-0.6.1-basic.iso" under VirtualBox 1.3.x.
several months ago. (without luck) - if you have had positive
experience we should fix that page.

Since VBox is modular, I guess you could port "some" guest additions.
