Posted by db on cbr1100xx on Mar. 05 2007,22:23Using DSL and QEMU on a 1Gb stick. No probs - can boot either via qemu or native boot. Love it!
However, how do I mount HDD's of the host PC when running under both qemu or native boot?

If I could find the answer in the resources you specify, do you think I'd waste my time, and yours, posting?
The only documentation I have is the readme.txt in the .zip file. Host PC HDD's are NOT mentioned in the version I have. The information may well be there, but it's not in a form that I can readily identify or use..........

On a Windows host you have to use the SMB client in DSL to mount a share from the host. On a Linux host you can use sshmount in DSL to mount any path from the host , see < http://damnsmalllinux.org/cgi-bin....t=17784 >
