I have mostly everything working now: special thanks to George Hartzell,
Christian Hiris, Phusion, and Orlando Bassotto.
I will write up my experience after I digest it a little more.
A few of the gotchas were that I originally did not install "bridging"
when I installed vmware, and when I did, I was binding it to the wrong
NIC (I was binding it to Christian's NIC, lol).
For some reason I *had* to select "Custom" as the VM's ethernet type,
and use the value of "/dev/vmnet1" when I did. "Bridged" and "HostOnly"
did not work.
Also the VM's gateway setting had to be that of my Linksys router, and
not the "Host IP" of my FreeBSD machine.
I ended up running VMWare 2.0 on FreeBSD 4.10-Stable. I will make
another attempt at VMWare 3.2 and also using FBSD 5.x when I have more
time (in about 2 months).
I am ecstatic, I get to run FreeBSD now! Woo Hoo!!
