What version of VMWare are you using? I don't believe that VMWare Player can use more than 1 NIC...it binds to 1 and that is it. Their free hypervisor product (ESXi) can certainly do it...but that's a whole different product entirely.

Well, with VMWare Server 2.0 you can go into Host and configure the virtual networking setup for the 2 NIC's. This way your server can have 2 NIC's configured and these 2 networks can be assigned to any of the virtual machines.

The problem you will have is when you try to add the 2 NIC's to the same VM...Windows is going to complain if you try to setup a default gateway for both network cards since the box shouldn't have 2 default gateways.

Typically, you use the 2 NIC setup when you want 1 VM to participate in 1 VLAN, while another VM participates in another VLAN.
