Launch Virtual Box but don't launch any of virtual environments. Select the Virtual OS you're interested in and from the Machines Menu select Settings. At the top of window should be a row of icons. One of them should say Shared Folders. Select this and then click on the Folder icon with the '+' symbol. Navigate to the desired folder or provide the path.
That's what I do and it works for me.

Ok I worked it out, it was a problem with Vista not my Mac, or is it the other way round lol
Step 1. Follow normal VirtualBox settings
Step 2. Enable File Sharing on Mac, Set file sharing permissions are required (E.g. Everyone or just current user)
Step 3. Now Vista (Bunsiness)
Step 4. Follow these insstructions: Enable LM Authentication in Windows Vista - Failed to map drive - Powered by Kayako SupportSuite Helpdesk Software
This enables LM authentication
Bingo, I can now map the drive and authenticate the user against the Mac user account.
