== Usage: ==
-Time synchronization and clipboard sharing are done by VBoxService and
-VBoxTray respectively - once they have been started you do not need to do
-anything special to use them.
+Time synchronization and guest control are handled by VBoxService - you do
+not need to do anything special to enable these. See the output of
+ VBoxManage help guestcontrol exec
+on your host system for guest control instructions.
+Clipboard sharing and automatic screen resizing are handled by VBoxTray;
+load the replicant by running /boot/apps/VBoxAdditions/VBoxTray. It will
+be automatically reloaded whenever Deskbar starts until you quit it by
+right-clicking it and choosing 'Quit'.
To mount a shared folder, tell Haiku to mount a null filesystem of type
'vboxsf' and pass the share name as a parameter:
