VMWare 4 With Red Hat Linux 9


I just installed RH9 into VMWare 4 (build 4460) but I get this error when booting the computer:

Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0... failed; no link present. Check cable? [Failed]

I was using RH8 in VMWare 4 before this, and I never got this error before. Im using bridged networking in VMWare 4. Please Help. Thanks!
