QEmu and samba / QtEmu installation[updated]


Who doesn't want to access the content from host to guest or vice versa..
where the guest OS is Windows
One of the solution is samba(Server Message Block).
though lots of helps have been provided by the linux enthusiast..
well this is what worked for me.


install samba
using apt-get install samba (or) any other way u could possible figure out

edit /etc/samba/smb.conf

[qemu]
comment = user sharable directory
browseable = yes
path = /home/sample/share
writable = yes
guest ok = yes
read only = no
create mask = 0666
directory mask = 0777
public = yes

restart the service
//not needed
//entered in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
//10.0.2.4 smbserver

in run dialog box enter \\10.0.2.2\qemu


[update: 5/5/11]
At the time of installing OS using QtEmu the process is pretty direct
1. creating the hard disk img which of course allots space
eg:- /home/ranjit/MyMachines/Ubuntu-9.04/Ubuntu-9.04.img
2. Select the valid CD-ROM image or physical device in my case it was CDROM
/dev/scd0
boot from CDROM
3. If necessary enable the network.
Now just click the start button. This will boot the image from CDROM
After installation
point the Image or device for this virtual device of CDROM option to
/home/ranjit/MyMachines/Ubuntu-9.04/Ubuntu-9.04.img

now the machine is ready to boot from the installed img on harddisk
