    virtual machine to connect to the internet. Cany anyone help?

    I found out that when I click on the networking thing I cannot select any
    number of network adapters. I think I have to find out how to be able to
    select this to get it to work?

    How do you get your IP information? From your ISP or a router
    attached to your DSL modem? If ISP, you're not going to likely get a
    2nd IP for your VM. You're going to need to use Shared Networking to
    connect your VM to the internet in this case.

    This is my first time using vp 2007. I do have vmware on my computer though
    and I have to vm's on in vmware that work and can connect to the internet. I
    think vp 2007 is very strange. For instance the user interface in vp 2007 is
    really dull and is like windows classic. i didn't change this and this is
    different from vmware which installs xp in a much newer version than vp 2007
    does. So I think it is a bigger problem than just my network settings. To
    add, there are no programs in xp in the vm i created in vp 2007 not even
    windows explorer or windows installer. I think something is wrong but don't
    know because microsoft doesn't have a contact for vp.

    It sounds like the installation failed, have you tried a 2nd
    installation? Neither VMWare or VPC install a "newer" version of XP,
    they both install it the same way and XP has no idea that it is being
    installed in a VM in either product.

    Also, make sure that VPC is not using one of the VMWare virtual NICs
    that it installs. A VM won't be able to communicate using one of
