Try making a shared folder with XP and see if it appears in KDE's file manager, Dolphin, after doing the step above. You might be able to share folders this way.
I don't understand what you mean by "Sharing and setting a user and password" on KDE.
I have root access and the user I am using in general, on the pc-bsd.
I set a folder under /media/mount_point_name (which is supposed to be the place where vbox defines it's shares since Ver 4 (I think). That folder have full permissions just for the test.
The XP directory (which is to be shared on the vbox guest machine) is listed on the vbox "shared directories".
Aside from that, I don't have an internal sharing or network on the XP host. It is a stand alone desktop, with a single user.
I am reluctant to start any network unless it is the only way to make this work, because I don't understand anything in networks.
Can you guide me step by step?
