comment Setting up networking on local development server under VirtualBox
Based on ifconfig showing just eth0 and not an eth1 entry, I'd say the second adapter you have in the VM settings hasn't been configured/activated within the guest OS. Run ifconfig -a and see if eth1 appears.

comment Why does it seem like I only have 99.8 GB of space, instead of 128?
In addition to @jlehtinen's answer, don't forget that the listed drive capacity, 128GB, is not the same as the usable formatted capacity of the drive. Formatted capacity will be roughly 7% lower than listed capacity, so a 128GB drive will have about 119GB of usable space.
