I'm running Red Hat Linux 4.5 in VMWare Server (virtual machine) on Windows XP (host machine). I'm using a loopback adapter to assign an IP address of to the VM.

How would I set up file protocol to access the VM's filesystem? Is it possible?

Windows Explorer uses the CIFS protocol for file: URIs, and the Linux CIFS server is Samba.
