Thanks - tried it and got this popup window:

Could not open /dev/vmnet8: no such file or directory.Virtual device
Ethernet0 will start disconnected.

Do I just go ahead and mknod /dev/vmnet8 or is there more to it?
Better, where is a good (and hopefully simple) reference for this?

Thanks (again).
