Windows 7: Windows 2000 in VM Under Win 7??

OK, first...

Read this guide, it will allow your Win7 to route traffic between subnets

Once done, well... you know, make routes, check connections, etc...
If you can enable routing capability in Windows 7, you'll be able to connect to domain without any problem, install VAX driver in the 2K, and all...
Since the 2K is effectively on a "real" network, it should work

Ps. Try to ask a vacant IP address to your IT guy, it'll save a lot of your time

I'm really confused by this article you pointed me to. 1) It's an XP article. 2) it talks about a computer with 3 network cards being the router. I don't see how this relates to this application.

Need further clarification.

The 192.168.10.x IP address is out of the question.

Grrrr... I'm stuck... crap...

Jeffs, how many memory do you have on your work machine?

The host has 4gb, of which 3 are used (32bit OS)

Here's our "position":

The VM is 90% up and running. Right now, you can connect to your VM via .0.x IP, and everything is good, but you need your VM to be able to access your .10.x IP.

Here are my ideas:

1. Make your Windows 7 acting as a router between you and your network(s) (.0.x, .10.x, .25.x, and .26.x). But I'm bumping to a dead end, I can't even configure my own virtual machine to do that (using a bonded interface = one NIC, multiple IP addresses). I'm still trying to solve this issue, which led me to the second idea...
2. Since you have some memory to spare, I'm suggesting you to make a new virtual machine, and create a virtualized router on it, that way we don't need to change Windows 7's configuration but in expense of several hundred MB of memory to be used by the Virtualized router.

Tell me your ideas...

At this point I'm totally confused.

At this point I would like to:

a) Get the video resolved. Let's get this display to show 16 or 24 bit color at greater than 800 x 600.
b) Why did installing the VBOX additions screw everything up before?

After resolving that, let's say I could do without the virtual network, and just be able to share the host drive C: and visa/versa (have the Host share the drive C: of the VM). I wasn't able to get the shared folders to work, but then I only "touched" on it and might not have known what to expect.

OK, solve the display problem first then...
Make a backup of the .vmdk (Shutdown the VM, no doing snapshots or anything), copy the backup to a safe place, then install additions.
Let's see if it BSOD or not... I even installed Windows 2000 on my VirtualBox just to know what's wrong... and mine is running perfectly...

I'm essentially "backed up" from before.

Remember your W2K is a clean install. Not a 10 year old polluted one like mine.

Good point... urgh...

Edit: Can you "clean" it up a bit, uninstall useless things/programs/protocols/whatever (like the DEC/VAX thingie), make it as "plain" as possible before installing the Additions...
