Setting up new domain

I am currently trying to setup a test domain using Windows Server 2003 Enterprise.  I am setting it up on Virtual PC 2007 since I don't have any spare hardware to use.  My question is how do I setup the network settings (IP address, DNS) on the virtual domain where it won't conflict with my current network and still be able to test everything properly (DNS, DHCP, etc.)

    Accepted Solution

    Connect the NIC card in your virtual PC(s) to "Local only" - this will create a private network between your Virtual PCs that will not communicate with the rest of your network.
