Setting up an NFS share on OS X for the Ubuntu VM would be the easiest way to do it.

Adding a "host only" network interface device to the VM would allow this regardless of network connectivity (meaning the share will be non-LAN dependent) –  wayoutmind Jan 13 '10 at 17:58
    
Good thinking Christian, completely forgot about that (duh moment :D) Brad, a detailed overview on setting up Ubuntu+sharing folders in OS X is here: daniweb.com/forums/thread82083.html# –  wayoutmind Jan 13 '10 at 18:23
