I run Samba on my FreeBSD host and the Win98 guest mounts its shares. Works
fine. I've always used user-mode networking, never tried tun/tap.

Ah, so you want to mount the guest's shares from your host, to run your
game's installer under WINE directly from the guest's disk?  You can try
copying the game installer over from the guest to the host, and run the
installer directly on the host, instead.
