Server 2008 VMware Bridged Connection

I was able to get a vm with server 2008 installed but when it came time to verify all components were working, my network wasnt. the network was unknown. I assigned it a bridged connectin (VMnet0). I currently have many other 2003 vm's that have no network issues I am running some in a clustered environment so they have a private and a bridged NIC. I am also experiencing the same issue with WINDOWS 7. I have tried changing drivers as well. vmware tools are installed. I also tried creating another new vm network mapping but then that disconnects my 2003 systems. I am at a lost cause. I am running version vmware server version 2.0.1 Build 156745
