Hypervisor : Virtual Box 4.2.6

I am planning to set up a 2-node RAC using VirtualBox.
We are going to use OpenFiler as the storage appliance. So, totally 3 VMs (2 RAC Nodes + 1 OpenFiler VM)
Public network details of RAC nodes
IP Series     : 192.168.0.XXXX
Netmask      :

Private network details of RAC nodes
IP Series     :
Netmask      :
Below mentioned is the /etc/hosts file
 # volga214 - Node1     volga214          volga214-priv1     volga214-vip
 # volga215 - Node2     volga215          volga215-priv1     volga215-vip
 # volga213 -- Openfiler server (iSCSI Target server)     volga213
I have to configure two NICs for Openfiler VM.
a. eth0 -- Public Network

b. eth1 -- For storage traffic
What should be the IP series and Netmask for eth0 and eth1 for the Openfiler VM ?
