What is the host operaing system and the VM implementation? With a linux host and VMware or Virtual Box there won't be any network issues. There probably won't be any network issues with a windows host and VMware, but anything else is problematical.

Sometime there are MAC address issues
Remove the HWADDR=bla line from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
It's not needed anyway.

Make sure you have installed the "VMware Tools" or equivalent counterpart, depending on the VM product you are using. M$ VM products like Virtual PC probably don't support Linux Guests and wouldn't have such tools, so don't use such products. The Tools provide drivers for the virtualized hardware, particularly Video and NIC drivers, and they make the VM much more responsive.

Go to System->Administration->Network
Do you have an eth0?
If so, double click it.
Make sure that the settings are correct AND that the "Activate device when computer starts" box is checked.

If eth0 is not there you will need to shut the VM down and look at what network settings you have in the VM machine.
