Networking setup to use Ghost to a Virtual Box image

By default when I setup a VirtualBox XP image the networking is set to PCnet-FAST III.  (NAT)
(I also tried to work with the Intel Pro 1000 driver.)

I have tried to bridge, local network, and can't seem to ping host on my network 192.168.0.x.
(I can use the internet on a virtual machine)

The goal is to be able to boot to the Ghost client and see the Ghostcast server (host pc) so I can image
a 10G virtual drive set as XP.  I have also tried  to ghost from an image locally and it hangs after selecting an image from cd.

I believe once I can get the Ghostcast Server to connect to the host I can continue with no problem.

Are you firewall free?  If you can't ping the XP instance, you won't be able to ghost it.

I have the firewall turned off and I have tried to move away from the VirtualBox NAT (10.0.0.x).

I can ping 127.0.0.1 and surf the net with the virtual box images - but not ping yahoo.com

I have also tried to bridge with an ip on the 192.x.x.x network, but no luck with pings.

Virtual PC however can ping my xp box by default.

I have given up on the Virtual Box config. to allow ghosting - solution was to just load the OS via CD and reinstall programs as needed.
