    Hi world, this is my first post here so be gentle.
    i have just installed virtual PC and am running a virtual machine with XP as the OS. ( the host is running on Vista...boo)...all is fine,,,XP installed all ok, but i want to firstly share the internet connection i am running on the host...i have broadband...no router as such just a set top box for tv/ phone etc.....it is running no problem on the host.
    I have looked at the share folders option under settings, and I am able to transfer folders over and can see them on the virtual machine...although non of them will run.....
    is there something i am doing wrong??..or is there something specific i should be doing to make the internet connection good....( i have altered the 'networking' section of the virtual machine to LAN by the way).. hopefully you will be able to help.......thanks in advance.
