Hmm.  My vague recollection is that you should mount the guest
additions, then install them.  After installing them, you
shouldn't need to mount them at all.
... oh wait.  Maybe it's the other way around?  Mount lilybuntu,
install that?
... no, wait*2, I think it's both.  Mount lilybuntu ISO, install
it, umount it, mount guest additions, install them, unmount them,
then never deal with the CDROM again.

Ouch.  Please do *not* read kainhofer.  From time to time, the
docs there stop updating.  In this case, you're looking at old
docs which I spent approximately 5 hours rewriting back in August.
This is frustrating for everybody involved.

Please start reading here:
You want to perform "complex tasks", and you are using windows.

Please let me know as soon as you hit a snag, so that I can fix
the docs.  It should be painless to go from a blank windows OS to
being able to create+test patches.  I know that we're not at this
stage yet, but if we make it a bit less painful each time somebody
tries to do it, then we'll improve the situation.

-devel please; I've added it.
