You don't need to touch Windows - that 172 address is the correct 
nameserver address, VMWare creates a virtual network within your machine.

You're only in scratchbox when you double-click the desktop icon for 
Scratchbox _inside_ of VMWare.  What you need to do is copy the 
nameserver line from /etc/resolv.conf in VMWare but _outside_ of 
scratchbox to the /etc/resolv.conf that is visible from within each 
target.  (you can install nano in the targets to do this easiest - 
fakeroot nano /etc/resolv.conf will let you edit the /etc/resolv.conf 
inside that scratchbox target)
