Kernel updates and Guest Additions
==================================
Reinstall VirtualBox guest additions after eache kernel change. After (re)installing the guest additions may need to use Host+G and Host+F to "enable" the resolutions greater than 800x600. Someone recommended using the linux-virtual kernel, but make sure to also install the header files or building the guest additions will fail!
