Specify individual network adaptors in vmware

I have used virtual pc for a few years and it has a setting that allows me to specify which physical network adaptor on the host machine is used for each virtual image.  I have just started using vmware server 2.02 and it just seems to give me a "bridged" option as the only workable possibility for my needs (besides NAT & host only)?  Is there a way to specify an individual adaptor, or does vmware effectivily load/balance network activity over all the bridged adaptors?

Yes you can with the "manage virtual network" from the start menu and you can map/bridge specific network adapter to specific subnet
For example, NIC1 > vmnet1( & NIC2 > vmnet2(
If you need a VM to be on both subnets, assign 2 vNICs and set each to connect to both respectively

Thanks... I didn't even look at the Start Menu. I thought everything was in the web interface! :-)
