Default About 2nd NIC

Hi folks,


Host OS - Ubuntu 7.04 lamp server amd64
VMWare license.vs.1.0-00
Guest OS to be installed - OpenBSD, Slack


Ubuntu is now running on this server and undergoing fine-tuning

/etc/network/interfaces
Code:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.0.10
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        gateway 192.168.0.1

Do I need adding a 2nd NIC?

If YES what shall I add on;
/etc/network/interfaces
Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The management network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.0.10
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        gateway 192.168.0.1


# The VMs network interface
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
        address ???
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        gateway 192.168.0.1
If NO, can Guest OSs share the NIC/broadband with the Host OS? TIA
