this might be a tad off topic but in an effort to provide shared folders for my win98se virtual machine I looked up the samba tutorial and there's a reference to pick System->Samba and I have no Samba connected to the menu but /etc/samba/ is there along with samba.comfig and synaptic says it's installed. Did I miss something?

BTW - the Virtualbox tutorial is great!

Are you trying to share folders among different machines in a network? That's what Samba is for. Maybe you should start a new thread under the "Hardware/Configuration/Networking" sub-forum if that's what you're attempting to do.
MX-14; 3.12-0.bpo.1-686-pae kernel using 4GB RAM
2.4GHz AMD Athlon 4600+
NVidia GeForce 6150 LE; 304.121 Display Driver
You didn't slow down because you're old; you're old because you slowed down.

he is trying to share a folder from a Win98 virtual machine to the host machine. To use the built in VB shared folder feature, the guest operating system must have the VB Guest Additions installed. Unfortunately, there is no Win98 guest additions version. The samba share idea is a work around.

Quick note, Mike - if you do the samba share thing, you have to make sure the VM and the Host are on the same subnet. This is easiest by setting the network adapter settings in the VM configuration to "Bridged adapter" instead of "Nat" which is the default. Your router will provide the VM the same IP info as your host machine, but with its own address.
