    Before booting the guest OS, select it and hit "Settings". There's a Shared Folders one. Make sure you have the box checked for "Enabled at power on". Then click the + button at the bottom of the window and select "Add shared folder...". Click the "Enabled" box, give it a name (this name will appear in Windoze), select the path and check the "Read only" box if desired. Then click the "OK" button. Boot Windows and you'll find it listed as a network drive (Fusion Tools must be installed).

    Oh yeah, you can also just drag and drop stuff from the Windows desktop to your OS X desktop and vise versa but it doesn't work as well it seems.
