Hyper-v Configuration questions Server 2008/W7/XP

Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 8 Pro 64bit on my HP laptop (i7-3632QM, 8GB RAM).
I have configured Windows Server 2008 64bit VM on hyper-v with External Virtual Switch.

Wondering what should I do if I want to create two other VMs (W7 & XP) which only be able to communicate with the Server VM? By that I mean, for accessing Internet, they should go through windows 2008 server VM. Should I create another Switch (Private or Internal) for those two VMs? How these two VMs (W7 & XP) can be configured so that they will use DNS & DHCP server configured on Windows Server 2008 VM?

Any suggestions and/or tutorial links would be greatly appreciated.

One other point I would like to mention here. After configuring that external virtual switch with Hyper-V, HP Support assistant has failed to connect to Internet though I can access Internet successfully. I will create a different post for that.

Thank you.
Regards,
Sur
