Tried Ubuntu 9.04 as a VM earlier with no luck either getting Guest Additions installed.
One issue I've had with the guest additions is installing them in linux guests. For some reason, the linux guest mounts the .iso image as a blank cd. I haven't found a solution to this problem, however, I have found a workaround. I burnt the guest additions .iso file to cd, then mounted it on the host, and ssh'd to the host from the guest to get the linux install script off the cd. Once I could access the linux guest additions script from the guest, the install was straightforward (just run the script as root), and everything worked as expected.
