Still can't get my VM to network...

Still can't get my VM to network...

Still can't get my VM to network...

Alright, I'm exhausted with this.  First, let me explain my system:

I have 2.0 GHz system running Debian sarge.  I have a WinXP VM set up.  I have two eth interfaces:  eth0 is a wired NIC, and eth1 is a wireless NIC.  I tried putting them both in bridge mode with and without NAT.

Now, after I run vmware-config.pl, it seems that everything is set up fine, and then for some reason, everything stops responding when I probe my eth interfaces.  For instance, I rebooted the machine, and when it came back up, I pumped for an IP address on eth1, and it just stopped responding.  No output, nothing, just had to hard boot, which is a big reason why I got away from Windows.  This is the only thing I've ever seen in Linux that causes a hard lock, and I've done some crazy crap.  Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has any input on this.  Right now, VMWare is no use to me.  I posted once on here and someone linked a HOWTO, which I had already seen, but went through again.  It doesn't help.  I need someone to maybe point me in th right direction.

Thanks, Paul
