I tried following the tips in the usermanual. Somehow I messed up. So
they say that it's easiest to just use bridging, I found it easier to
use routing. So on my default gateway I added

	route add -net <network-with-virutal-ips> \
		netmask <netmask> gw <host-with-vritualbox> 

then enable ip forwarding, 

and do

	route add -host <virtual-ip-address> vbox0

and you're all set.

This is the more advanced way of doing things, while bridging is
"easier to install", however I didn't get it to work.....
