mounting a host shared disk in a linux virtual machine


Hello,

in an open SUSE 11.1 host machine within a Sun VirtualBox I have created an Ubuntu virtual machine.

I would like to make the SUSE home directory /home/user1 available in the Ubuntu virtual machine. Have defined a shared folder within the VirtualBox. Am not sure how to mount this inside the Virtual Ubuntu machine.

Best


Georgios

You should have that option when you setup your virtual machine.
Also, VirtualBox and Suse both provide documentation on doing this.
