I just commited a simple solution to enable direct access to host files from Windows guests with user mode networking and with almost no set up. It is currently very experimental but it works, at least for Windows 98 with the Samba server from Red Hat 9. Any suggestion is welcome.

How to use it:

* host config:
qemu -user-net -smb /myhostdir ...

* guest config:

Add the line: smbserver

in the file C:\WINDOWS\LMHOSTS (for windows 9x)

Then /myhostdir can be accessed in '\\smbserver\qemu'. No network drive can be mapped to it, so it is better to add a short cut to this link.

Ignore the messages saying that the network directory cannot be reached.
