can you put a Windows Virtual PC (XP mode in Win 7) in a different VLAN than the main PC?

Hello, is it possible to put a Windows Virtual PC in a different network than the main PC?  I was assuming I could do this by making the network port a VLAN Trunk and then tagging the two interfaces with what ever VLAN they should be in, but I cannot figure out how to do it on the Windows side.  The computer is running Windows 7 Pro X64 and the Virtual PC is Windows XP Mode.

yes, its IP can be set independantly of the IP on the host PC in the normal way.

Thanks KCTS.  I figured it out.  I had to download the latest Intel driver which enabled VLAN tagging.  After that, I had to set the switchport to trunk and allow the 2 VLAN's.  Then I had to set the VLANs on the network device.  The trick is that now I have 2 networks so windows routing is funky on the main computer.  I do not have this problem with the virtual XP machine since the Intel driver creates a virtual network interface for the VLANs which I can be assigned to the virtual machine.  To fix this I had to create a windows default route with the lowest metric and all seems to be well.
