XP Guest - guest additions issue

I am running 64-bit Ubuntu 8.04 as the host with a 32-bit Windows XP Home guest. I have no mouse functionality in XP so I tried to run "Devices->Install Guest Additions..." and waited... and waited and waited some more (10 minutes). It doesn't seem to bring up any dialog box asking me to download the ISO as I have read in the instructions for installing guest additions. Any ideas? Is this an issue with running a 32-bit guest on a 64-bit host? Can I manually download and install the guest additions?
