I'm having a small issue with VirtualBox, and hopefully someone will know the answer right away. In Virtual PC 2007, when you run a Windows guest machine, it grabs an IP address from your local network. This is handy for me, because I can run a Server 2003 or XP guest, and join the domain. However, I'd prefer to use VirtualBox, so I can run a Linux guest as well. How would I configure VirtualBox's network settings so they act like VPC2007, in that they grab an IP from my local network, rather than a random one from it's internal NAT address?
