Just Installed OpenBSD on VMware Workstation but a few questions
 
Just installed OpenBSD under VMware and I have a couple of questions here.

How can I install a Desktop enviroment like GNOME or KDE?
I had install ALL of the file sets too.


Also, during the installation, I had skipped the Networking part.
Now, once I have OpenBSD installed I can now logon using the console as ROOT.
But to configure the Networking, can you please explain how?
Do I have to use my VMware's ethernet virtual IP address, or should I configure everything that my Windows XP (host OS) uses like its router IP, DNS IP, and etc...???

And last....

I did the IFCONFIG command, but which network adapter should I use below for configuring?
Should I use the one that VMware is using or the one that my Windows (host) OS is using?

lo0: inet 127.0.01

vic0: Media: Ethernet autoselect
status: no carrier

enc0: flags=0<> mtu 1536


Please help.
Thanks.

I started to write a reply, but I see you are already getting help on another forum.
