Create a new VMWare Appliance from existing one

I use VMware player to run Maemo SDK environment. Recently Maemo released the latest version of its SDK – Diablo. So, I decided to upgrade Chinook VMware Appliance to Diablo. I copied maemo-sdk.vmdk (virtual disk) and maemo-sdk.vmx (definitions) to the new directory, modified title in the definition and run VMware player. But after booting I found that there is no eth0. Just lo.

To solve that problem the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules should be deleted. It contains the virtual MAC address of Ethernet card. After reboot everything should be ok.
