How do I copy and paste a block of text between a host OS and a guest OS in MS Virtual Server 2005?

I know you can drag & drop in the 2007 version but I don't want to upgarde. Any ideas?

Can you remote desktop from one machine to the other? If so you can cut and paste that way.

Unfortunately I can't. My host is Windows XP and I've built a completely isolated domain under VS05 using a DC and a couple of SQL servers. I would like to find a way to copy a bunch of scripts into my host (XP) so I can work on them.

You can use remote desktop between domains, but are they isolated networks ?

Can you "attach " the floppy drive to one machine and then the other and copy them over that way? or, if you have Internet access, upload/download to an FTP site?

Floppy drive suggestion was a great idea, now I have to find a floppy disk ;-)

You could do the same with USB or CD burner.
I suppose 3-1/2" floppies will soon be remembered like 5-1/4"s
Thanks shirvanians.
Cheers !
