Subject: RE: VMWare Environment

Thanks for the reply...
First I should state that my knowledge of *nix in general is
extremely limited - part of the attraction of the rockbox
development environment is being able to build that knowldege up..
And secondly my knowledge of VMWare is close to none -
I simply followed the instructions on
and started -and finished :( - there...
I am guessing that I am attempting to setup Samba:
To make it easy to access the files in the virtual Linux
operating system, we have included Samba. We've configured
the user's home directory as a file share.
This means that you can edit the source in your favorite Windows
editor (that supports UNIX formatted files!) and compile in
the virtual machine.
* Share name: \\ip\user
* Share username: user
* Share password: rockbox
I really am paddling around in the dark here :-)
