Parallels Workstation - sharing files with host?

I have Parallels Workstation and have win2000 installed on it. Everything works good but how do l share files with my Kanotix OS. For example when l used win4lin home edition there was a file in my home directory called mydata which l could share files through.

I run Slackware for host OS and use WinXP for my guest OS on Parallels. To share files install Samba then setup to share your homedirectory.

That's what the Parallels team told me to do. At the time l didn't know how to use Samba but since l have bought a new computer and through my router and using SAmba l have networked the two. Right now l haven't been using Parallels because l have no headers for my Mepis 3.4-3 distro.

I'm running mandriva as a host and Win XP a guest thru parallels, and file sharing has been a breeze for me.
