comment Why Ubuntu lags so much in VMware
@Charles Green, when running NAT you're getting your IP off the Host Machine, in Bridged you're getting the IP off your network router or DHCP server. Since I am assigning a static IP off my router this works best and is easiest to run if you want other machines on your network to see the Guest

comment Why Ubuntu lags so much in VMware
I have been running Ubuntu in VMWare for years, since VMWare 8. I always configure my settings with at least 2 Procs X 2 Cores and at least 4 Gb Memory along with 3D Graphics Acceleration active. I also use Bridged Networking with a static IP off my Router. The only slow thing about Ubuntu is Unity and I run Gnome which gets me around that slow crappy interface.

comment Easiest way to assign a static IP address for a LAMP server / VBox snapshot
Thanks for the info in your answer. etho in my question is a typo. In my /etc/network/interfaces file it is eth0 as I only changed dhcp to static on that line and then added the network addressing, etc. below. I had tried dns-nameserver at one point. I went ahead and made the dns-nameserver change and restarted but got the same error. I will take a better look at your advice against what I have already tried. To answer your question regarding hostname changes. More or less how I bind the servername to the static IP addressing. Thanks for all your help.

comment Virtualbox Guest Additions Installation error
There should be a couple hints in var/log/VBoxGuestAdditions.log . Could you post the relevant log entries?
