virtualbox & DHCP

Hi there,

I've got virtualbox installed on windows XP and i'm running JeOS as my guest operating system, i've got the networking setup as host interface and when i start up JeOS it just sits there saying aquiring networking address ... and never picks up a network address from my DHCP server ... is there any reason it wouldn't be getting a DHCP responce from my server?
