Sharing folders with VirtualBox

The host system is a Linux based OS, the guest system – running within VirtualBox – is a Windows based OS. The challange was to share a common folder. The documentation was pretty clear about it; but still it did not work. Now it does. In the guest system, a simple

c:\\>net use x: \\\\vboxsvr\\myshare

did the job [1]. There is no need subsitute vboxsvr with or or something like that. myshare is the name of the shared folder located on the host system.
