"I would do the following:
On the host machine use VMNETCFG (in the VMWare player folder) to change the ""bridged"" setting from automatic to bind the the adapter you want (in this case eth0).
On the host machine set the binding order of your adapters to use eth1 first.
On the guest set the network to use bridged.
Note this will not prevent the host from accessing eth0 - at the very least the host will use that to handled the bridged communication to the guest. Changing the binding order simply makes applications on the host (unless specically bound to a adapter) try eth1 first. This is a good short description of network setup with VM: http://www.petri.co.il/virtual_create_network_testlab_vmware.htm"
