Note that I believe VMWare really only sets what interface the virtual 
machine sees - not its IP address (which is set in the guest OS).  I

any problems with this.  Bridged networking is probably the most typical 
configuration since it just makes the virtual PC appear like another 
machine on the local network.

machine configuration (which just lets you pick WHICH already-configured 
network you want the machine to see).  I'm just guessing here, but it 
wouldn't surprise me if you could set up more than one virtual network 
device and put each on a different network (or maybe even on the same
