Unhappy Configure virtual network settings in debian guest on xp host dual nics

Debian 40r4a
VMware server v1.03
XP sp3.


Currently setting up test developement environment for our sw engineers.
This is the scenario Id like to get to.
Im running a debian virtual machine on my xp host using vmware server.
There are two physical network adapters in the physical machine one connected to our main lan and the other to a development board running network/telephone services.

In the virtual environment I want to be able to connect one virtual network card to each network segment. One to pull down files from our lan (using an ftp client ) and the othr to connect to external hardware for development purposes.(both dhcp)

Ideally Id like one nic to be configured in nat mode and one in bridged mode.

However I only ever see one network interface in debian (eth2) . i can configure this to use NAT or bridged. in bridged i get an ip address for one of the cards , and can ping one of the subnets. In nat i can ping both of the subnets but i still only see one network interface when i do ifconfig -a (eth 0).

Im puzzled and think i need to configure the virtual network settings in the vmware server console in order to see two nics in debian, but am not sure how to do this.

I created this image on a different machine that the one its currently on now (does this make a difference)

Any help greatly appreciated as its becoming urgent.

if you are using VMware server 1.03 then you should be over at the VMware forum asking this question. This is a VMware problem dealing with the fact that you have a server software on a client operating system. I would strongly advise you too seek futher asistance from thier KB .
