    I'm testing out VMware Fusion, and have a XP Pro virtual machine setup. Last night, everything was working properly... but today, something has apparently changed, and the virtual machine doesn't have any network connectivity. The only thing i have done to the XP install MS Office and some Windows Updates, but i am pretty sure that i had connectivity once i was done.

    So, i'm not sure if this is a XP problem somewhere, or a Fusion setting that is screwy. Fusion is set to "Share the hosts internet connection." I tried searching on VMware's knowledgebase, but i'm not exactly sure what o search for, so i haven't been able to come up with anything.

    I restarted my Macbook, and tried the XP virtual machine, and now it seems to be working correctly. I wonder if there's some bug with either switching between users and/or the macbook sleeping that screws with Fusion.
