    Infact, looking at my configuration, I believe Linux has the drivers installed as XP is using "VMware Accelerated AMD PCNet Adapter" as the network card so the divers for your actual network card wont be relevent.

    John: I've got no idea on what.. Since Windows won't detect any drivers not any network connections.. Ipconfig is dead and shows nothing in the cmd console.

    Kieren: Windows Update is kinda useless if you don't got internet =)

    Doh! That was a stupid suggestion :S

    How about setting up a new network connection? Does the wizard find the VMWare newtork card?

    Kieren: In the Device Manager it does find one ethernet device. nForce4 and I'm having problems installing the damm driver, it just won't work. Not with my gForce 6600LE card either

    Because you are running VMWare from Linux, Linux is in charge of your hardware. To allow another operating system (Windows) take control of the hardware (Your network card) will cause lots of conflict problems. Because of this VMWare gives Windows a mock network card so it wont appear to windows as a nForce4 device. For instance, mine appears as VMware Accelerated AMD PCNet Adapter. This is why you are having a problem installing the drivers.

    Try right clicking on the Ethernet button and choosing "Bridged" as the connection. That is what mine is set as...
