I'm running Fusion on a Macbook Pro and installed Windows XP.
The problem is that it will not connect to the internet for updates etc.
Do i have to enable something in Windows for it to see my internal card?

As far as I know not required. The VMF guest OS will connect using the connection available with host OS. VMF doesnt make independent connection (if I haven't forgotten it)

+ Tri-BOOT MB +
MAC OS 10.5
Mandriva 2009
Windows 7 RC

It behaves like a normal PC (If thats possible)

Now with Leopard

If anything, it may be worth trying to install BootCamp drivers from your Leopard install disc. Just pop it in and let your windows virtual machine recognzie it, and see if that does anything.
