I have a  dual boot -- Centos 6.3 and Win 7 running on bare metal

There are three NTFS partition and 3 partitions for centos -- /boot,
swap and LVM PV device.

I am able to access NTFS when centos is booted.

I have installed XP as a guest under Centos.

Now I want to install, say firefox, whose setup file is in the second
NTFS partition of host from the XP guest.

How to make  the partition visible to the guest?
