What do you mean by couldn't add any folder? What happens if you open the dialog for adding a shared folder? Can't you open the dialog or what?

I'm having the same problem except I'm running windows Vista as the guest host on Fedora 13. I followed the instructions provided. I added the shared folder under the details tab for the Windows Vista VM. Started the guest OS and tried to add the shared folder both with Explorer as well as the command line. In Explorer vboxsvr does not show up. On the command line it reports vboxsvr does not exist. Any suggestions????
