Hi and good day!

i recently installed ubuntu 9.10 on Microsoft virtual PC 2007. I have 2 network cards, I setup Ubuntu on spare network card.
seems everything was set, i shared a folder, it downloaded updates to be able to share it. and it was ok.
my only problem is, I cannot access the shared folder on ubuntu using windows xp on same network.

Okay, what you want to do is first download sun VirtualBox. It should support your current virtual machine file, and shared folders are very easy to do. VirtualBox is free, and convenient. www.virtualbox.org to download. Now, import your virtual machine file by going to file, virtual media appliance manager, and going to hard drives, Find the hard drive file, and see if it works. Then get the machine going on your virtualbox, and click (host-f10) that will load the virtual additions iso, which will allow to set up easily accessed shared folders. Look for a guide on the internet to learn how to access them in Ubuntu guest after setting them up in virtualbox.

You will need to set up Samba so you can access your shared folder on Ubuntu.
