VMWare server and Fedora 10

I am running Fedora 10 as the host operating system and have a VM guest of Windows 2003 server running on VMWare Server.

Everything was working sweet until I tried to access a USB pen drive. I lost all network connectivity between the host and guest OS's. I cannot get en IP address and the hardware is not recognized. I reinstalled the Windows OS with no luck. I brought down and up the VM network interfaces in Fedora. Nothing

Help Points definitely available.

Thanks in Advance

Best Regards,
Dan

Did you try accessing the USB Drive in your Host or Guest ?

Have you installed VMware Tools in the Windows Guest VM ?

The problem now is not with the USB disk it is with networking. Neither of the network cards, wireless or ethernet, are available.

I suggest that you try reinstalling VMware Tools in the Windows Guest.
