Smile How to set network settings in oracle virtualbox(Debian) installed in XP machine


Hope everyone is doing good.

I have installed VM VirtualBox in my Windows XP and configured Debian Lenny in it.Everything is fine upto this.
But my problem is I cannot access internet in the Virtual box.
Tried to set the network using the commands net-setup eth0,setup and ifup eth0.
None of them are working.

Please suggest how to fix this.

Thanks in advance.
