sharing between vmware (ubuntu) and windows7

Hi Friends,

I have windows7 in my system and I installed vmware having ubuntu OS, I am able to work in both independently.

But I want to share some text file from WINDOWS7 to the vmware ubuntu,

I tried and able to ping vmware(ubuntu) ipaddress from windows7 and vice-versa.

But when I tried to "Map Network drive" in windows7, I am getting error.
Is there any way I can share some files between win7 and vmware(ubuntu).

Can anyone guide me how to do this.

vmblock - vmware kernel module SYNOPSIS
modprobe vmblock DESCRIPTION
This is a kernel filesystem module. Ideally, it should be loaded before any of the Tools userlevel components are allowed to start, though vmblock itself has no dependencies. When loaded, vmblock will establish itself in /proc/fs/vmblock and create two nodes therein, dev and mountPoint. Before mounting a vmblock filesystem, ensure that /tmp/VMwareDnD exists as a directory with permissions 1777, otherwise host to guest drag n' drop operations won't work. To mount, issue: mount -t vmblock none /proc/fs/vmblock/mountPoint Once mounted, vmware-user(1) can begin to make use of vmblock to assist with DnD operations. Note that while vmware-user(1) is running, it'll keep an open file descriptor on /proc/fs/vmblock/dev, and thus all vmware-user(1) instances must be killed to unmount and unload vmblock. OPTIONS
vmblock has no options. SEE ALSO
