Currently you have Vmnet 1 and 8 available so unless you route between networks traffic won't go anywhere. The easiest would be to configure the guest in VMWare to use "bridge" mode then configure the guest itself to use 'dhclient'. This way the guest will be able to get an IP from your LAN DHCPd like any other LAN machine.

i set the network adapted to bridged in VM Server, and used system-config-network to set DHCP, then did service network restart, and it says "Determining IP configuration for eth0... failed."

also, when i set manual IP, i can connect using ssh & telnet from the host machine, but cant get the linux VM to contact outside addresses

i just ran dhclient, and it came back with "no dhcpoffers received", however i do use a dhcp server...

That information does not contain enough information to help us help you. We would need to know the address the DHCP server is at, the contents of the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/*eth* configuration file, if the DHCP server blocks unknown MAC addresses from getting a lease, any (error) output. In short: we need factual information not descriptions.
