VBoxGuest Support Driver for NT 4.0 wrong startup type => Fixed in 1.5.6

Description

The guest additions for Windows NT 4.0 do not work correctly as installed because the "VBoxGuest Support Driver" is installed with the wrong startup type. The startup type for the driver must be "Boot" but it is installed with a startup type of "System".

The work around to get mouse integration working is to use the NT 4.0 Control Panel "Devices" function and change the startup type for the "VBoxGuest Support Driver" to "Boot". Then reboot Windows NT 4.0 and the mouse integration will work.
