Finding the host from VMware Fusion

We've just created a new virtual machine on Windows XP using VMware Fusion. Our VM is using NAT to share our host's Internet connection. But how can we access the host from it? I believe we need to find the IP address first, but what's after that?

    On the XP machine, find your IP address by going to the command prompt and typing "ipconfig". Try replacing the last number with 1 or 2

    The VM host has one IP address (10.0.0.100) and each VM guest has its own IP address (10.0.0.101, 102, and 103, respectively) that it received from the DHCP server. This way, each VM guest acts as its own IP node on the network. Usually I like this system, because each VM guest is identifiable
