Can you open, modify, and save documents?

Did you tell it to save your credentials?

I may of went back to read more of the track and it denied because the credentials were not saved.

hey mate..it seems to be a prob with Windows 7...i tried some other flavor of linux & when i clicked on my drive icon..it said "cannot mount the volume Linux (name of my NTFS partition in windows that i wanna access) as NTFS system is currently in use, try to safely remove the drive (as in ext hdd or pendrive) & then retry.



but i really appreciate ur support all the way through.

It not a problem.
But I noticed your trying to mount it instead of access it via network folders.

problem solved...u need to have vmware tools properly installed in your linux guest to use shared folders...in vmware settings there is a provision to add a folder as shared thru a wizard, pretty easy..once u r done with these...the shared folder will show up under /mnt/hgfs

thanks again for all ur help guys...this thread is solved now.
