Ok, what kind of linux guest have you? Are you using VirtualBox, VirtualPC, VMWare?

what i've done is had to setup a samba server on my v.linux box. Then just browse to it from windows. Or if you have a diff usr/passwd for your linux box - map it in windows...

Hmmm. Not sure about VMWare Workstation, but take a look at this link:

I'm more used to VirtualBox, it's a little different.
