Simple note about losing the NIC when you copy a VMWare guest.  If you “copy” the image it creates a new MAC address.  Ubuntu 7.10 figures you installed a new NIC and it sets up ETH1.  That means ETH0 stops working.

Ok, so I found this post and it led me 70-persistent-net.rules as the culprit.  Swap the MAC around and it’s good to go!
