Good day all.
I just finished installing vmware-server-2 on my machine. I used package.keyword get the proper packages unmasked.

Everything installs and configures fine. I link bridged networking to eth0 and no error.
However, whenever I boot up a VM and try to connect to the network, nothing. I can't request an address from DHCP,. The eth0 interface is how I connect to the machine in the first place ... it's up and working fine. It gets it's own address from DHCP. If I set the IP/dns/gateway/etc manually, it works fine and I can access the network.

I'm kind of confused. Anyone want to help sheed some light on this for me?
