are you using bridged or nat?

yes, you can change to any static IP address, or if using DHCP add a reservation for a specific IP Address.

What is inside vm? Windows again?

And yes, you can change any IP.

Commented:
Are you in LAN and you want to have the same subnet as the host?
Then you should go to virtual machine settings, and under the Network adapter, you choose bridged.
Hope this will help.

you can use either NAT or Bridged Mode.

It would be easier if you use bridge, the VM will obtain an IP address from you router, if you then setup a Port Forward rule on you router for tcp rdp 3389, you will be able to connect to your PC via RDP, just enable on your VM if you have XP Professional

BTW is it VB (virtualbox) or VMware workstation?

The procedures are slightly different.

Use bridged mode.
Say your router 10.1.1.1 gave your PC the ip 10.1.1.2

then in bridged mode, the ip comes from router and then VM IP would be the next in pool (10.1.1.3) etc
