On Samba I'll give my obligatory answer "abandon all hope" (unless you have 
scads of time to hack.)

Why not try something more direct?
1. setup an FTP server
2. setup Apache and access folders in a browser
3. setup ssh (much easier than samba).

You can do all three on both osses (is that even a word?) and that will give 
you good to and fro. There are some nice easy free apps for Windows ssh - 
putty is a good start.

I know that on qemu (another vm thing) you can setup networking between the 
vm-os and the host, perhaps there's something like it in vmware.
