To get the network enabled in VMWare edit the .vmx file to have the following:

ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
ethernet0.connectionType = "nat"
ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE"
ethernet0.linkStatePropagation.enable = "TRUE"
ethernet0.startConnected = "true"
ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"

Start the VM open the Network Preference pane and set it to DHCP and close the pane. Reboot Haiku.

To get sound enabled in VMWare edit the .vmx file to have the following:

sound.present = "TRUE"
sound.startConnected="true"
sound.virtualDev = "es1371"
sound.fileName = "-1"
sound.autodetect = "TRUE"

Then download and extract the following OSS zip to /boot/

Uhm ... just the word from the VMWare & VirtualBox user: Haiku runs perfectly inside VirtualBox too - and you don't have to sweat to set up the network.
