Mounting shared folders

Is there a way to mount folders added as shared folders on VirtualBox?

Specific I can use the automount feature, but when it tried to access it, it won't let me enter and username and password, just get invalid access message.

My notes for setting up Linux around this in my script to install stuff is:

# Run the following manually and then reboot in order to gain access to the Virtualbox Transfer directory
sudo usermod -G vboxsf -a $USER

If this does not work google "virtualbox vboxsf" and see if any of the articles/pages help.
