I thought I should ask this as another question since the last screen is filling up.
I was able to install Linux Mint ver.10/Julia with Virtual Box. My problem now, is that I am still trying to run the tbaMUD program that is on my host OS - Windows 7. I accessed the help files included with the virtual box help menu and was able to add the guest additions that allow me to link a folder from my host OS to my guest OS. I can see it under Devices\Share Folders but I am unable to access the files and folders under this mounted folder. I am able to edit the folder, which lets me mount or add a new folder, or I can delete it.
