Problem seeing host XP shared drive in Linux Guest OS

    I am currently running SUSE 10.1 as a guest OS on Windows XP.

    I would like the two machines (real/virtual) to share a folder.

    I would just use samba on the Linux side but I am on a specialized domain at work and having some trouble (meaning I'm not smart enough to figure it out).

    Is there a way to define a shared drive in XP and have the guest LINUX OS find it? Or is samba from Linux really the best way to go?

    Any and/or all help would be appreicated!

    I apologize if this is somewhere blatant, I did multiple searches before starting this thread.

    It should only require having "something" shared in XP, and then connecting using samba.

    You should be able to have an entry in /etc/samba/smbfstab (read smb-f-stab) to make the connection automatically on startup.
