My host machine is running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I have XP Mode (XMP) installed and it is fully updated. What I want to do is set it up so that a command prompt in the XMP opens up in a window on my host machine (and thus, is a 32-bit command prompt). I HAVE gotten this far already. However, what I am having problems with is this--I want to be able to access a folder from my host machine in the window of the XPM command prompt. Is this possible? If so, how would I go about doing it? (Please keep in mind that I am *somewhat* knowledgeable about computers, though networking is not my strong point.)

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
mike.

Ok, I've gotten this to work. But after some playing around with it, it won't really work for me, for reasons I won't get into. What I want to do now is map the C drive of XP-Mode as a drive letter in the host machine. So, for example, when I'm in my host machine and type Z:\, it will bring me to the C:\ drive of XP-Mode. I understand I would only be able to access this drive on my host machine when XP-Mode is actually running.

I've gotten as far as sharing my C:\ drive in XP-Mode. But every time I try to map it in the host machine, I can never find it. Even typing the \\MACHINE NAME\SHARED NAME doesn't net any results. Can someone *please* offer some assistance?

thanks.
