AFAIK the interface type hostonly is hardwired to /dev/vmnet1. As long as you 
connect only one virtual machine this should work fine, too. If you want 
connect multiple virt. machines to your network, bridged mode + Custom 
+ /dev/vmnetN setup is the easier way to go. The doc 
MultipleInstances.FreeBSD decribes bridged/non-bridged vmware setups in 
detail. If you connect only one virtual machine, i see no 

I had some troubles w/ hostonly setup in the past. That's the reason why I 
prefer to advice use of the custom interface type. But - there was a large 
improvement on the vmnet code during the last months, so things might work 
fine for both interface types.
