I have VMware workstation 4 for Windows XP and I installed RH9 into it as a guest OS with no problems at all. My problem is getting the networking side of things to play.
I have 2 desktops and a laptop.
DESKTOP1 has Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition on.
DESKTOP2 has Windows XP Pro SP1.
LAPTOP has Windows XP Pro SP1.
USRobotics 9106 wireless ADSL router.
DESKTOP2 has VMWare workstation4 installed with RH9 as a Guest. I called this VM machine DESKTOP2-VM1.
I cant get the RH9 VM machine to see my local network. The router is the DHCP server for the network and is set up as 192.168.1.1 on the LAN side. I can't ping this address. All my windows machines are working fine with the router including the VM host (DESKTOP2). Other VMware machines are working fine too - only they are Windows Guests. This is my first linux one (I'm a Linux newbie, you'll have to forgive me).
When booting RH9, I see this screen:
When booted, I go to network configuration and see this:
If I click on Activate, this happens:
So, I click on OK. go to Hardware-->Edit on the adapter and see this:
Does that all look OK? Here's my VMware settings in Windows:
Does anyone know where I should start to get this working? Thanks a lot! I want the VMware machine to get a DHCP lease from the router.
