network cards and dual OS


Hi

I have a win2k system and now i plan to install mandrake 8.0 on the 2nd hardisk and have a dual OS. My NIC works fine with win2k and now i will buy another NIC and a HUB for my linux which i will run as a guest OS under VMware. So, ideally i will be running win2k as the HOST OS, then launch vmware and run mandrake and i want them both online so i can switch between the 2.

Does anybody know of any websites explaining how to set all this up! i am also running DHCP so i also need to avoid IP address conflict.

thanks for ur help

I think you don't need a another NIC, it should be able to have both on the network at the same time using the same NIC.

well, we use vmware at my work and as far as I know, when your installing, vmware will ask how you want to make a network connection, and there is some type of option that asks if you want to make your connection thru the host OS, so i would think each one can have a connection on the same IP.

I don't know all of the details but what about virtual network devices such as eth0:0 and eth0:1. They can have differ3ent IPs and everything.
