I installed Ubuntu on my work PC. I can Dual-Boot with Windows XP as a safety net in case something doesn't work in Ubuntu. I want to be able to stop using windows but it looks like that's impossible for a few reasons, one of them being the Xerox DocuColor 240 with Fiery. I can install it in Ubuntu using Postscript Drivers but it doesn't give me all the functionality I get when installing it in Windows and Xerox doesn't support Linux (not this machine and not Fiery).

So I installed a Virtual XP Machine and installed the Adobe Creative Suite on it and now I want to add that printer. When running on my real Windows Boot I install it by creating a printer port and then using the Xerox's IP ( 10.0.0.8 ). But the Virtual XP isn't on the same gateway, It's on 10.0.2.2, so how to I get to 10.0.0.8?
