Setting up private Network in VMware ESX Server?

Hello to All,

Recently I have setup Vmware ESX 3.5 on Ubuntu Fiesty.It was free version downloaded from official vmware site.I have installed Vmware Virtual Infrastructure Client on Windows Xp. I too installed 2 Guest OS - RHEL 4 Update 4 and RHEL 4 Update 5 on the VMware. During the Installation, I setup interface as Bridge Interface and which took IP through DHCP Server as Since I just want to test my own little network and dont get disturbed through corporate DHCP, I tried disabling the Bridge Network. I can see these options:
1. Bridged : Connected directly to the physical network
2. NAT : Used to share the host's Ip address
3. Host-Only : a private network shared with the host.
4. Custom : Specific virtual Network.
I tried Selecting Host-only since I wanted IP like and dont want to disturb the DHCP Server.
Now My OS have already retrieved IP from DHCP and currenly in can I make it as Which file I need to edit..???
Pls Suggest
