I have no internet in Linux due to my only way to get internet is
through my blackberry curve phone sharing ( I think some call this
tethering) internet to the pc. It works fine in winblows of course
with the provided winblows software, so I booted over to Linux, fired
up VMware workstation 6.5, set up the internet in it, and I have
internet in my guest os in vmware which is 32 bit xp media center. I
right clicked the connection from "network connections" and went to
share this connection. Now I'd like to share it to my host os, 64-bit
Ubuntu 8.10 in Raid 0. Do I need to be using NAT or Bridged. Please be
specific and give detailed instructions. Thank you. I've set up
internet sharing before but not virtually.
