VMWare bridged networking and wireless

I'm working on a laptop configuration of vmware-server;
I try to only connect wirelessly with this machine so I'm trying to get
bridged networking through the wireless adapter when using vmware-server;
The wireless adapter works flawlessly and is being managed with network
manager, which is working well;
This is a fairly fresh F9 with all the latest patches including the ones from
the newkey repos.
When I bring up an XP vm, I get a failure to detect the sound device and once
up, a failure to connect to the network:
I've tried bridging both my wired and wireless adapters and selecting the
wireless as the preferred device; I've tried only bridging the wireless
adapter; I've compared my settings to a working setup on my desktop, and they
seem to be the same. I do not have any other type of networking configured on
this vmware configuration (no nat or host)...
What could I be missing? I'm not getting any selinux warnings. Each time I
bring up the vm, I just wind up with a 169.xxx address...
