Take a look at the networking capability of vmware's free offering - VMware
Server beta.  You can set up a virtual network isolated from the host
operating system.  I set things up like this all of the time at work using
VMware Server's big brother ESX server.

Subject: Question about use of VMware to build an isolated network from host
machine


Hello All,

I would like to use VMware to build an isolated network on a host which
will
be disconnected from the host machine. That is on my winxp machine, I
would
like to setup two VMware guest machines that can be connected together and
can be attacked from each other. But that hosting machine would not be
touchable or connected from the host machine.

Please advise how to configure that? I would like to use the VMWare guest
machine for testing worm, virus and penetration test.

Please advise.

THx.

Ricci
