[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Gentoo VMware Image Question

When I was trying to get the vmware image running on my Mac, I found  
that the best way to set it up was to configure the network device as  
"bridged".  I then ended up with an en1 (not en0), that had a real  
address on the local network, and I could connect to it from outside  
the vm image.
