This post is written in Windows 7 RC running in Virtualbox inside Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) 5.3 – good fun!
OEL is in reality a Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which is a bit amputated in term of applications and drivers.
The reason for this constellation is OEL 5.3 Supports eBusiness Suite R12 and RDBMS 10g.
Next step is to make Win7 to speak to a R12 installation.
c:> net use x: d:/path
To assign drive.
Copy and paste of files works fine but if you try to install any software from the shared drive or read media it doesn’t work.
Even running WIN7 on top of Vista resulted in errors using shared folders.
Would be nice to resolve this problem…
Until then just copy/paste files from the shared drive to C: and work from there.
