Both machines will need to be in the same workgroup too. Samba will come into play also.
Here is some additional information on the machine setup:
1. The computer is set up as a dual boot system, first boot sector is Ubuntu 9.04, 32 bit (and this is the sector I am working in with VirtualBox, with Win98SE as the Guest) and Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit (I haven't been able to get VirtualBox to re-build in Ubuntu 9.10 after an attempted upgrade yet, but that is another issue).
2. Apparently, My "Host Only" network setup is actually detecting the Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit sector, not the actual host sector.
Here are some settings from the guest and the host:
Host-only Network Details:
IOv4 Addre4ss: 192.168.56.1
IPv4 Network Mask: 255.255.255.0
IPv6 Address: fe80:0000:0000:0000:0800:27fe00:0000
IPv6 Network Mask Length: 64
Server Address: 192.168.56.100
Server Mask: 255.255.255.0
Lower Address Bound: 192.168.56.101
Upper Address Bound: 192.168.56.254
In Ubuntu 9.04, Devices - Network Tools:
For Network Device: "Unknown Interface (vboxnet0)"
IPv6 fe80::800:27ff:fe00:0 Netmask/Prefix 64 Scope Link
IPv4 192.168.56.1 255.255.255.0
In VirtualBox, In "Network Neighborhood" in the Win98SE guest, I now see a "Vbox1" computer listed, but interestingly, it is Described as "VirtualBox on Ubuntu 9.10". The host is actually Ubuntu 9.04, although the machine is set up for a dual boot between Ubuntu 9.10 and 9.04. So, it looks like the network is picking up the wrong disk sector- not the actual host sector.
So, where do I go from here?
