Your VM IP address is

Assuming you are using a 3.1.x version of VirtualBox, do the folloing:

1. Right click on the VM in question within the VirtualBox console and click Settings
2. Click on the Network option on the left
3. For each adapter tab (1,2,3,4) which has an enabled network card, selct Attached To and change it to Bridged Adapter
4. Click OK.
5. Your machine can now pick up a DHCP address from your DHCP server on your physical network.

You may have to bridge the networks using the Network Connections in the Control Panel.

I had to do this when using VMWare and Solaris 10 on my IBM laptop.  

I am not near a windows machine, but i believe if you right click on a network in the network connections
window there will be an option that says 'bridge connections' or something along those lines.
