    Question File Transfer to a Virtual Machine

    Ok, I'm fairly new to Ubuntu and I just recently installed Windows XP on a virtual machine using VirtualBox. Everything went perfectly (more or less) but I am wondering how one could transfer files from Ubuntu to the virtual Windows XP machine.

    You can share a USB drive.

    You can install the Virtualbox tools on the windows guest and share a partition.

    You can use a network protocol such as nfs, samba, ftp, http

    Personally I use network protocols.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
