I want to install vmplayer with bridging on RHEL 5 but somehow vmnet0 is not comming up when (ifconfig) i read some articles and it says that vmware bridging protocol may not be enbled on NICs. Can some one please tell me how to enable this protocol on linux and if there is some other problem.

Best Regards
