My name is Johann and after many manipulations on LINUX at school, I decided to install an OPENSUSE 10.3 distribution as a Virtual machine on WXPsp3 via Virtualbox.
Of course, this is not the best way to begin under this beautiful DEBIAN distrib, but anyway…
Here is my question:
I tried to install the additions client, so I copy/paste the additions clients folder in a personal folder, then I transform VBoxLinuxAdditions.run to execute it with >chmod u+x VBoxLinuxAdditions.run< in root profil…
But apparently, I need to update my Linux-Kernel-Headers package…
Here is the code after .run execution:
“… All good.
Uncompressing VirtualBox 1.5.6 Guest Additions for Linux installation…

I’m not sure I understand your question.
Your host computer is Windows XP, right?
And the printer you are talking about is not connected to the host
computer itself but accessed from it via a physical network?
In that case I would try to configure routing on the Windows host
between the virtual LAN connecting the virtual openSUSE machine (guest)
to the host, and the physical LAN connecting the host to the printer.
You can then connect directly to the network printer from the
openSUSE guest via whatever protocol the printer supports.
