I use VMWare on a daily basis, right now Im running VMWorkstation 6.05. In this and previous versions predating v5, as well as ESX / ESXi, if you go to Edit the VM Settings, Change the Ethernet Card to:

Host-Only: A private network shared with the host

This will do just that, have your VM's and physical box communicating on a private network.
