    i have VirtualBox 4.0 w/ Ubuntu 10.0, and I want to enable USB support. I downloaded the Extension Pack for it, but I don't know how to install it. Any help would be appreciated.

    If I don't have a group named "VBoxUsers", do I have to make one?
    How do I install the Extension Pack? It said I just have to double-click on it, but when I do, it opens up with Archive Manager.
