I have the following setup. I have a Windows XP and Linux system, which are connected to each other directly through cable and not connected to any other network. I have hosted a VMWare with CentOS on XP System. Now I want to assign a static IP to the VMWare, so that I can share the files between the standlone Linux and VMWare CentOS i.e hosted on the XP System.
How can I acheive this setup?
