i downloaded sun vertual machine.
when i click shared folders, i get a little box.
Folder Path.
Folder Name.
no matter what i put in path or name,
the OK box stays grayed out,
for path i typed, c:users\public folder
for name i typed, public documents.
what should i type?
Host system is Vista ultimate,
guest system is XP home

You need to type C:\users\public folder

and you need to create the folder (C:\users\public folder\public documents) first, otherwise the system won't find it.

Also it's better most times not to put spaces in the folder names - use an underscore, or simply miss out the spaces.
