The guest additions is what allows vagrant to do it's "magic",
essentially making working with a VM much easier such as sharing
folders, forwarding ports, etc.

I might have an old VM.  It sure looked like my VM was Owl 2, but I
could have been mistaken.

Haha!  I think that might be the best advice.  I'm going to ask
Webenabled if they can setup a Ubuntu VM for me.  Vagrant compatible
with Ubuntu and I a more familiar with it.  Otherwise, I think I'll
settle for a CentOS development environment and call it close enough.
