Nmap 4.60 errors - Failed to open device

I'm getting errors when running Nmap in Vista with
multiple virtual adapters. It worked fine until I
installed VMWare and Andlinux. Now, I get this error
when  attempting a scan:

Starting Nmap 4.60
dnet: Failed to open device eth4 

I then specified my eth0 adapter.
nmap -e eth0 x.x.x.x 

Starting Nmap 4.60
NmapArpCache() can only take IPv4 addresses. Sorry

I then disabled all my interfaces except the ethernet
and ran nmap:

Starting Nmap 4.60
dnet: Failed to open device eth3

Any suggestions? Thanks.
