    Question Sharing Windows Files with my Kububtu (VMW)


    Hi!
    Can some one help me?
    I installed Kubuntu 7.10 in a Virtual Machine (VMW) because I recently have Internet Iand I hate Viruses so my idea was to use my Kubuntu distro to do everything regarding internet, but I need to do stuff with my Windows files and I will love to see my files without going back to Windows and copying them to a Pen drive and then again to the linux desktop.

    Someone told me thta I can use Samba to see my Windows files, but I dont know how to install this, what to download or things like that!

    Please help! Thanks

    instead of making a samba server on your linux box,
    just make a share on your windows with read/write permissions
    and install samaba-client and samba-common packages
    so you can access the windows share from linux
