Please, do yourself a favor... Before you drop your very first sample into that VM, take some time "a serious amount" to learn what you are about to venture into. From setting up the VM and network and protecting yourself and others, to the tools you will need to properly test, how to test, and above all else, most important, take the time to research samples before you execute them, learning of how they attack and effect the system. This advice, is just the tip of the iceberg, there is much involved in testing malware and security products. If you fail to educate yourself before doing so, it will more then likely not end well. This is one time, someone showing you how to configure something, is not good enough.
