Default VMware & Fedora 7 issue

Hi, I need to setup additional soft after installing a virtual machine (Fedora 7), but the so called virtual DVD/CD-ROM is not auto-mounted. What should I do in order use my ROM drive under the VM?
tnx in advance.

Oops, the problem was trivial, just need to mount manually.

Another issue: does anybody know, if there is a way to share data between a real OS (XP) and VM (Fedora 7)?

They say it's possible through VMware's shared folder option, which adds a link to the XP's folder in /mnt, but I tried it doesn't work

Не знаю, как седьмая Федора, но RH не общался с NTFS, а винда не читает ext2-ext3, так что папку надо захерачить на раздел, отформатированный под FAT32, его читают и окна и иксы. Если Федора имеет поддержку NTFS, или если у тебя FAT32, то проблема в другом
