on VMware output IP to XP

hey everybody,
im new to linux
i installed a ubuntu 6.10 via VMware on my XP(simply text mode)
i use ADSL and get dynamic IP.
everytime that VMware ubuntu starts, it get a IP.
i need this data everytime.
(because i set a telnet service on it)
(i need this IP to telnet into it)
any simple way to output this ip to my host XP?(i cannot copy and paste it to my XP)
because it's a dynamic IP.
there any convenient way to telnet into it without that changing ip?
(i dont have fixed IP)

You want a bridged network. The guest OS would need to have a static IP address/settings from the host's network range.

Bridged Networking

"If you use bridged networking, the virtual machine is a full participant in the network. It has access to other machines on the network and can be contacted by other machines on the network as if it were a physical computer on the network."
