I think that you are likely to have problems having multiple machines with the same name, is there any special reason that this is necessary as I don't know of any software that has that kind of restriction.
As to the loopback the only reason you would switch ICS on is if your clients need access to the internet or outside network. It will also switch on DHCP for the loopback adapter which may be what you are after.
You wolud want to set up ics on your VServers external network card and tell it that it is shareing the connection to the loopback adapter.

The reason that I am having to name all of the computers the same, is because we use Oracle and the name of the computer is tied to each database and if we want multiple users to use it, we have to have them named the same. The files that they transfer will have the correct information this way.

I have figured it out! Thank you for your help SYNACK.
All computers are named the same on their VPC(HD and VMC are not though), I had to install loopback adapter on host server and then set up the virtual network inside VS2005. Once that was done, I enabled DHCP, used 192.168.1.1 as the network and then set the settings there. Added the virtual network to the network adapter of the VPC and then started it up. Once started i changed the LAN on the VPC to one of the addresses on the loopback network and it now works. I can share files from the VPC to the host!
