Mounting a shared folder is easy, what caught me was that I can't change ownership of the folder created under the shared folders. So my regular user account can't create files.
I realized that mount actually accepts options as to who would have access to the mounted folder, so to mount with read/write access to a user, do:
uid=1000 is the user ID of the user. For example, I have a user named timus, to get the ID, you can do:
timus@ubu1110:~$ cat /etc/passwd | grep timus
As can be seen, timus uid is 1000 and group ID is 1000 as well.
userdat is the VirtualBox shared folder name.
/mnt/userdat is the mount point
