Networking WINXP SP2 through OpenSUSE 10.3

Here's the deal. I'm running openSUSE 10.3 as my primary OS and as a virtual machine i'm running VirtualBox OSE. I have Windows XP Pro SP2 installed into VirtualBox.

The first part of my question is how do i get my SUSE OS to see my windows network.

The second part of my question is How do I pipe the network through linux into the VirtualBox OS if this is at all possible?

It is possible. I use qemu to do it. Essentially you need to set up a bridge device and connect your real interface and virtual interface to it. You also need to make sure you have the tun/tap driver. This should be helpful.
Also search previous posts. I know theres a similar thread somewhere
