Did you configured your DNS?
What is the output from
Code:
cat /etc/resolv.conf
ping google.be
ping 212.100.160.51

Did you configure a network connection for your VM in VMware, it doesn't always do it automatically, or else the emulated network card has no 'driver' in JeOS. Thats my two cents anyway.

Well, unfortunately, and I'm not being harsh, you need to work out whether there is a network connection set up for your VM in VMware before you move forward! It's the first step, this might help: http://www.vmware.com/support/ws55/doc/ws_net.html
