edit: at the time of this writing this does not fix the artifacts problem. Fedora devs are looking into it.

For Fedora 16 + Classic Gnome + Compiz on Windows host please run the following command to fix 3d artifacts being stuck on the screen:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install kernel-devel kernel

reboot

reinstall guest additions

reboot

Regarding FreeBSD as a guest:

FreeBSD8.2:

You must have already installed perl, python and xorg via ports. For example:

1) Install BSD 8.2
2) portsnap fetch update
3) portsnap extract
4) /usr/share/ports/perl/make install clean; /usr/share/ports/python/make install clean; /usr/share/ports/x11/xorg/make install clean
5) Download the virtualbox-ose-additions tarball from http://www.freebsd.org/ports here:

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/p ... ?tarball=1

6) tar -zxvf virtualbox-ose-additions; cd virtualbox-ose-additions; make install clean

This should install vbox additions

7) Follow BSD instructions on Vbox wiki.

==

FreeBSD9

You should be able to build the virtualbox-ose-additions out of the box by following the instructions on the Virtualbox BSD wiki by doing /usr/share/ports/emulators/virtualbox-ose-additions/make install clean



download the virtualbox-ose-additions tarball from here:
