    Yes... make sure you set the workgroup to a name that you use in Windows. Make sure the read only box is not clicked. That name will be seen in Network menu of Windows, in Explorer, down near the bottom of the file listing.

    You likely will have to re-start vmware with its Windows vm before you see the share there.

    My problem is everytime I start XP and want to use the sharer folder, it asks for a password. How can I just make it automatic?

    Thanks
    You can edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and make the share accessible by the Guest account, then it may not bother asking for credentials.

    There are many (many) options in that file that might do the trick.

    the other way round

    Well, after not succeeding LOTS of times, I did it the other way round. I share the XP shared documents folder, instead of the sharer folder.

    In Ubuntu how do you see the shared folder that is in Windows VM?

    Re: password everytime in my sharer folder

    Well, I went to Network and it showed me the xp. It was just a matter of adding the shared folders folder to my file browser links.

    I used the XP procedure to make it part of the MSHOME network, I guess this helped...

    Also, don't forget the password needed on the Ubuntu side:

    Code:
    sudo smbpasswd -a <name>
    Enter your password two or three times and then you should be able to see the Ubuntu shares.
