Posted by Baquiran on Nov. 16 2004,16:39I am running the embedded version of DSL within W2K. After mounting the hard drive through the manager in the lower right of the screen I still can't save documents to my hard drive. What am I doing wrong.
Excuse the newbie question!

Thats not the physical HD you are mounting..I dont think there is a way other than networking to physically touch the "host" harddrive
qemu is a completely stand alone app
I wonder if you could get the samba.dsl and have it mount a share on your host OS by using the IP stack?
Posted by cbagger01 on Nov. 16 2004,17:54Here is how you get the files on to your Windows hard drive:
1) Connect your computer to a network. Local LAN, whole Internet, doesn't matter.
2) In Windows, create a network share directory, or use the built-in one called "SharedDocs". You may need to enable read/write authority for your share.
3) In Windows, open up a command prompt (Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt).
4) For Win2k/WinXP, type "ipconfig" and write down your IP Address.
5) Go into DSL embedded. Open up smbclient window. Type in your IP Address for the "Computer Name". Type in the EXACT Sharename "SharedDocs"? and a username/password combination.
6) When you get to the smbclient command prompt, type "get filename" to retrieve a file from the Windows share directory, or type "put filename" to send a file over to the Windows share directory.
7) When you are done type exit, quit, or bye (I forget the exact command).
