Well, I recently played with Debian Etch in vmplayer, and used ssh/scp to
share files between host and vm. Worked quite well - I was able to use
"connect to server" with ssh/sftp and Nautilus. I imagine in KDE one could
use "fish" in Konqueror - similar functionality. 

I couldn't get nfs to co-operate though, and I don't use Samba since I
only have Linux boxen, unless you count the OS-X partition on my laptop,
which gets used about once every few months, since I prefer to run Ubuntu
on my iBook :)

Q: Why on earth would you prefer Linux to OS-X ?
A: OS-X is an insult to BSD and Unix, and mangles it beyond redemption

Flames to the usual address ;-)
