VM ware guest OS configuration troubles. Fedora Core

I have a troublesome vmware configuration that I'm in a rush to solve.

Here's the issue.

Windows Server 2003 Host.
VMWare server 1.01.
Fedora Core (linux kernel version 2.6) guest in vmware.
VMWare tools are not installed in the guest OS.

Problem: We just changed the guest IPs and DNS settings, and have new proper IPs. After reconfiguring the network settings, applying the changes, and rebooting, we still cannot ping the outside network. Pinging localhost works. But the outside addresses are dead.

The Fedorac guest OS is running a typical LAMP setup. It is alive and working on localhost.

What type of Networking did you select for the VM ? Bridged, Host-only or NAT ?

The issue ended up being a corrupt ifconfig config file for eth0. I thought for the life of me it must be an error on my part.
