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

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.
