Can't connect to Guest OS

Hi, I'm runing on RH9 using VMware ws 4 with a guest os of Win98. I want to share files between the guest and host. The way I have effectively done it is by just changing between HOST and NAT networking for the guest. With HOST I can boot the OS and see my host OS in the network and transfer files, but to access the internet I need to use NAT. So I was wondering if there a way for me to make my C:\Share folder visible on my host OS? I have tried the mount -smbfs command but I get an error saying it' can't connect. Any help would be great.
