How do I select which network adapter to bridge in vmplayer

Last Modified: 2011-10-19

I have prepared a XP virtual machine by VMware Workstation. It is running fine in VMWare workstation environment, but I have a problem when I deployed it (take a clone) and try to run in  VMWare player:

I run VMWare network in bridged mode and player automatically maps the virtual machine network to an arbitrary network card on the host machine.
But this card may not be always the one that is suitable for me (for the user).
I want to learn if it is possible  to configure the vmplayer to bridge to a custom network card (as it is available in the vm workstation product).
Thank you
