Specs: Win Server 08, 4GB
My virtual machine is vmware I'm running Windows Server 2008 in it. My host is windows seven.
I'm a total newbie so I need a step by step layout on how to do this::

I want to be able to type in an IP Address in my host web browser that would take me to my virtual machine (//inetpub/wwwroot). Is this possible? Please Help Me.

In the VMware configuration set the network interface to bridged mode. The server will then act like an independent machine on your network and you can either assign it a fixed IP address or let it get a DHCP one. It's as easy as that.
