VirtualBox and Folder Sharing under Ubuntu 9.10

Host OS: Ubuntu 9.10

Guest OS: Windows XP

To share a “Host” folder (in this case Public) and see it from the “Guest” we do:

Host:   local$ VBoxManage sharedfolder add ‘Windows XP’ -name “sharedfolder” -hostpath “/home/user/Public”

Guest: C:\> net use p: \\vboxsvr\sharedfolder
