na....the problem is that when i enable the shared folder, it asks me to install guest additions for the OS. when i do that, the virtualbox guest additions installer says something like ' its not valid for this os'. so i'm stuck there.

Well, that link says that Windows file sharing does work with a 9x VirtualBox client! That's what I was suggesting. Or you could just write the files to a CD (or iso image) and transfer them to the VM that way.
