Yes.  In the host's properties for the wired NIC, uncheck all except the VMware Bridge Protocol service.  This will make your host unable to use the NIC, but will allow VMware to use it for guest VMs.

Sorry, just noticed it was Linux host and Windows guest.  I'm sure there is a similar method on Linux, but don't know what it is.
