VirtualBox and networking


Hello,

I've installed VirtualBox, my host is OpenSuSE and I am running 2 virtual OpenSuSE Machines on it.
My current host has 6 Physical NIC's and I need to have 1 VM work with 5 of those NIC's and 1 VM with the same 5 NIC's but the NIC's for my VM's are all under a diferrent vlan's.

example:
Virtual Machine 1:
NIC0=vlan 100 for VM1
NIC1=valn 200 for VM1
NIC2=vlan 300 for VM1
NIC3=valn 400 for VM1
NIC4=vlan 500 for VM1

Virtual Machine 2
NIC0=vlan 600 for VM2
NIC1=valn 700 for VM2
NIC2=vlan 800 for VM2
NIC3=valn 900 for VM2
NIC4=vlan 1000 for VM2


Can this be done with VirtualBox?
Does it need to be done under a bridging?


Any help will be appreciated!!!

Txs

txs aus9,

That helped a lot,
I downloaded a new rpm (VirtualBox-1.5.2_25433_openSUSE103-1.i586.rpm) and it worked great.
more info can be found at: http://en.opensuse.org/VirtualBox_Installation
which is a step by step tutorial on Vbox for SuSE 10.2 and 10.3
