Hi Paul,

thanks for the Information i found out, that i cant use them.
I run different Linux (Debian/BSD/Suse/Gentoo) flavors on
our systems for testing purposes with virtual HDs. Now i wantet
to listen to some music (starting broadcast with vlc to our other
developers in our network from the Debian System running as
SMB Server). So i wanted to load ogg files from a directory
shared by guest and host system but this is in our situation not
possible. They could be shared with Samba but i want them to
be streamed from a virtual HD. I solved this by moving some
files to a Virtual HD with Samba and vlc is streaming from it
now...

Thanks...

Best regards

Kerem Gümrükcü

VM Additions are included with VPC 2004. For a default installation,
they are here:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Virtual PC\Virtual Machine Additions

Once you have a support Windows OS installed, you can simply launch
the VMA installer from the Action menu.

Assuming you are running a Windows guest, use the Action Menu/Install or
Update Virtual Machine Additions on the virtual machine's console (while the
vm is running), as Steve indicates.
