I'm trying to work with Virtual PC, but there are several files that i have in my host OS (Windows XP) that i need in my Virtual Machine (Linux Debian)... so, i need to create a shared file or a network or anything...

In my case, I just changed the settings for the VM and told it to use my actual network card. It then appeared to windows as a machine on the network like usual, asfter i set up samba

the thing is, i configured it to use my network card, but nothing happens, it tells me there's no network device...

thats wierd. It doesnt see it as the real network card, you know that right?


e.g my PC physically has a wifi card but linux just sees an emulated 10/100 ethernet card

Debian doesn't even identify any network card... i have it configured to use my Ethernet 10/100 card
