Taking the guest OS vm into the host OS network area. How?

Hi there;

I need to take the guest OS XP to the same network area with the host OS.

Host OS network configuration is as follows:
Host OS gets the ip dynamically and automatically as seen below: 192.168.2.8

Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::bdea:5659:e0e3:ad
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.4(Preferred)
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : 09 Nisan 2010 Cuma 15:0
Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : 11 Nisan 2010 Pazar 15:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DHCPv6 IAID . . . . . . . . . . . : 301997498
DHCPv6 Client DUID. . . . . . . . : 00-01-00-01-12-81-16-FF

DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Enabled

whereas guest OS has the following network configuration:

Description . . . . . . . . . . . : VMware Accelerate

Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-0C-29-FF-3F-43
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.17.128
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.17.2
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.17.254
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.17.2
Primary WINS Server . . . . . . . : 192.168.17.2

As you see they are not in the same network area, and guest OS is NATted in the vmware. Could you help solving this and how to give an ip to the guest OS that his IP as 192.168.2.x?

Which setting should be done in vmware workstation/virtual network editor?

Best regards.

I select bridged and the configuration looks like as:

Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-0C-29-FF-3F-
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.8
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : Saturday, April

so, is it the most true configuration, could we assume that they are in the same network?

Best regards.
