VMware Fedora 8

Im new in Fedora 8 and VMware. Last time I used Fedora 8 on my host pc and MS vpc just works fine. Since im new with VMware, I really need help about this..

My fedora 8 ( running on VMware and this VMware program is running on my host pc (That's Windows XP as a gateway ( atm)..

Im trying to reach the fedora 8 with my windows xp, but seems i dont really understand this vmware's ips cause me headache. So, the problem will happened like this: when i ping and resolve my gateway ip ( through my fedora 8 vmware, its failed. Below is details about all these ips:

Gateway (Windows XP) = = IP:
VMware program (Running on my gateway)= IPs:vmnet1: vmnet8:
Fedora 8 (In VMware) = = IP:

So its should be like this:-
Fedora <--link--> VMware <--link--> WinXP

Any ideas how to make Fedora 8 reach to my gateway (winxp) bypass the vmware so that its can allow any incoming and outgoing connection (especially when im running httpd and ftpd servers on my fedora 8)?

please explain

Just for completeness: what was the solution? Where did you add the wrong IP number? LQ is meant to be a resource for information, so it would be nice to have threads that give full information where possible.
