Hi All,

I have 2 VMs CentOS and Windows-XP. Now I want to do the following:
1. Linux server must have a static IP address in the segment 192.168.0.0/24 with the Windows client being able to communicate with the server.
2. A DHCP server should be configured on Linux box such that it leases the addresses to the local segment.

Can anyone give me exact steps that I should perform on both of my VMs running on my Windows-7 box using VMware workstation software.

Thanks
