na....the problem is that when i enable the shared folder, it asks me to install guest additions for the OS. when i do that, the virtualbox guest additions installer says something like ' its not valid for this os'. so i'm stuck there.
doesn't work...just read somewhere that virtualbox doesn't support windows 9x versions well. so the guest additions won't install, nor will the shared folders work. the only way out is to use ISO images and copy stuff that way :-(
you can read it here- https/forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=9918
Well, that link says that Windows file sharing does work with a 9x VirtualBox client! That's what I was suggesting. Or you could just write the files to a CD (or iso image) and transfer them to the VM that way.
