Virtual Machine in VMware

Hi,
 
  I have a VM called "FS1" on windows 2000 server OS and then I copied that VM, called it "FS1_W2003", shut down "FS1" and started "FS1_W2003". However both virtual machines have the same computer/Netbios name "FS1".

  I like to rename the computer name of old/inactive VM "FS1" to something else and use that virtual machine for some other application.

  If I start this up, it will create a problem because it has the same computer name/static IP address as "FS1_W2003" unless I shutdown the new VM "FS1_W2003".
 
 Is there a way that I can change the name and IP address of this old VM without shutting down the new VM "FS1_W2003"?

Yes, start the vm without it's virtual network cable connected.
(Edit virtual machine, network, on the right top of the window: connect on boot)
