Static IP address on VMware Fusion

On Version 4.1.2:

% vi /Library/Preferences/VMware\ Fusion/vmnet8/dhcpd.conf

host dev {
  hardware ethernet 00:0c:29:1e:93:11; # check HWaddr using ifconfig.
  fixed-address 192.168.39.101;
}

% vi /etc/hosts

192.168.39.101	dev

Restart the guest OS (Ubuntu) and VMware itself. It seems when upgrades VMware it’ll be overwritten dhcpd.conf.
