Virtual Box-Guest Static Ip

Just wanted to share what worked for me.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.4. I have windows Xp running in Virtual box. The XP and virtual box were necessary to support a server application for a middleware company that my application interfaces with; the server only officially runs on XP. Anyway, in order for my application to to access the server I needed to set a static ip (or so I thought) to the guest XP installation.
Rather, I found this link on port forwarding to the XP guest. This way I can set the Ubuntu host to static (and code that ip into the app) and just forward the service ports I needed to the Server on the guest XP.

Hopefully its helpful to people!
