Linux SUSE 10.2 VM accessing Windows Files of Host

From previous posts you will see that I have set up a SUSE 10.2 Guest within my Windows XP system using VirtualBox on my Notebook. Also I have managed to access XP files on my home network from my native SUSE 10.2 PC, By combining the methods I can access XP files on my Notebook from within SUSE guest.

Enter smb:// and it gave me access to "My Documents" which I have setup as shared. The address of my PC ( I found this time by using MS "System Information" found by following
Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools and then from within "System Information" follow System Summary->Components->Network->Adapter and in my case used IP address found in wireless.
