sharing partitions using vmware

I'm using win xp and have set up a guest under vmware (suse ). Now I would like to share a partition with my music files but don't know how to. I enabled windows file sharing but can't find it in suse. Anyone tips for me?

You will have to setup SAMBA in Linux for file sharing. Xfce4 has a file manager that can access Windows file shares. Also Konqueror can access Windows file shares. Another way is you can setup a drive that is formatted as FAT32 and share it with VMware and Windows.

Thanks Electro. I used sharing by vmware, and after installing the vmware tools package correctly, the problem was solved.
