VMWare, RH7.1 guest OS

Hey all,
I got hold of a copy of VMWARE for Win2k (running on Advanced Server) that I am trying to run RH7.1 as a guest OS within. I have it configured to load the RH install from an existing install, on it's own partition, and I am sure I have it configured properly. When I power on the virtual machine (to load linux) it comes up apparently without knowledge of my NICs, Sound, and USB controller. I have the NICs set as bridged within VMWare setup, but it almost seems as if they are being hidden from the Guest OS. Hence, I have no networking within Linux, and what good is a Linux install without networking?
Has anyone had any experience with this?
