I can't figure this out from the FAQs and guides at parellels.com. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to mount in OS X the disk images used by the guest OS? This is possible in Virtual PC. In the absence of shared folders, a really easy way to share files is to shut down the guest OS, and mount the disk image in OS X. My goal of using Parallels Workstation would be to get some GIS software working on my Macbook--which means having GB of files available to the guest OS. Using networking to copy files seems very cumbersome.
