    Hello,

    You can use Samba.

    Please see here, under sharing:

    And see here, pages 4 & 5:

    Not exactly what you want, but the basic principles are the same.
    Use Samba, define uses, define shares and off you go!

    Cheers,

    +1 on Samba. IMO Samba is easy to set up and will work on most any OS and any virtualization platform.

    Alternates include NFS, SSHFS, FTP, and to some extent http.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
