I didn't say you have to - I said it's better :), because -nic is obsolete and can stop working in any new version of Qemu. Anyway, these options work for me: -device e1000,netdev=host_files -netdev user,net=,id=host_files,restrict=on,smb=/path/to/dir/,smbserver=

If your windows installed NIC drivers correctly (check it - I'm not sure about XP), you'll be able to access host files at \\\qemu\

There's plenty of info in qemu's man page - check it out.

I want to be sure that windows guest will be installed correctly. So, I
used the following option while trying to install Windows XP from an ISO

-fda /home/mahmood/qemu-vm/virtio-win-0.1.102_amd64.vfd

With that I expect to install virtio, so that I can later use
-net user,smb=/home/mahmood -net nic,model=virtio

P.S: You said that -net is obsolete and I have to use -device and
-netdev. Can you explain what is the equivalent of the previous command
in the new version? I searched but actually I am not quite sure about that.
