Hi,
I am running number of linux VMs under vmware 8.x workstation. I have a networking question.

The VM guest machines are configured with vmware NAT. These are clustered machines so network is essential to get them started up. My VM machines are receiving IP address in range of 192.168.146.XXX,  I need them on 192.168.1.XX to get things working.

Host network details are as below
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 10.174.129.173
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.128.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.174.128.1

Thanks

You can either use Bridged networking, or change the DHCP Server IP Range for NAT.

Why do you need 192.168.1.x ? If this is because you do have a 192.168.1.x subnet somewhere, this will NOT work, for the NAT'ed subnet is not the other "real" 192.168.1.x subnet.
If you need to change the subnet assigned to NAT'ed VM, this is done with Virtual Networks Editor (NAT subnet is usually vmnet8) , but using 192.168.1.x for a NAT'ed subnet would be very unusual, since this is a very commonly used subnet and it could confuse your VMWare host and routing devices.
Please explain a little more what you are trying to achieve...
