Does VMWare Fusion negatively affect system performance?

VMware Fusion v3.0.1

One vm for Windows XP, converted and recently expanded the disk size.

Mac OS X 10.5.8, 2 x 3 GHz dual-core intel xeon machine.

Immediately after booting, and before VMware Fusion is launched, the Activity Monitor shows eight processes associated with "vm". What caught my eye is the duplicates: netifup and dhcpd.

I noticed this while trying to re-establish network connectivity after the upgrade to 3.0.1. I am not sure when the network connection was clobbered, so I cannot say it happend during the upgrade.

Is eight processes typcial? I expect about six, as listed in other notes and documents on the web site.

Could this be related to the failure to connect to the network?

Oh and if you have =>4GB of memory I'd suggest you run Fusion 3 on 10.6 - it's a very 64-bit aware app.
