    Hey, I'm running Virtual PC 7 and I've got Linux installed on it. Is it possible to use folder shares with my mac with Linux? Or is that a windows only feature?

    Thanks

    It's Windows only. You could share folders via the virtual LAN though.

    you can install Samba (SMB) on linux, set networking to Virtual Switch, and then your VPC will have a unique IP, and you can do windows sharing with it. however, samba isn't exactly the most user-friendly piece of software to configure.
