how to manage multiple NICs and vms

I have a server with multiple NICs installed. Right now I am using the servers NIC "teaming" software to use them. I am running several VMs on the server.  Is it possible to somehow "dedicate" individual NIC cards to a single VM?  Do you have any control in VMware server over how the nic's are used?

thanks for any info

RE: how to manage multiple NICs and vms

You do this via port groups on vswitches or by using dedicated vswitches (if you want to entirely isolate a vmnic). You then assign the VM to the appropriate port group.
