VMWare showing host files in windows


When i try to map a network drive in win2k using VMWare, it doesnt show any of the files from my host (mandrake linux) is there some way you have to enable sharing of certain files? i want to enable my windows partition /mnt/windows

Try Mike Weller's web site where he explains how he set up VMware with Mandrake 9.1:

http://www.weller.ws/toshiba/man91.html

I found the site helpful but at the end of the day I found VMware more trouble than it was worth. I have a couple of things that I can only do in Windows 98SE so when I have to do them I just log out and log into Windoze. Maybe when I get more memory I'll try it again!
