Hi, I just found something that might be interesting - I didn't find the solution here on this list:

when installing xen 3.0 I had trouble to get networking going - it worked perfectly on the same machinwith the non-xen kKernel. But with the xen Kernel (self-compiled, to get support for my sis900 network chipset) ran, I got lots of error messages with something like "netdev watchdog..." in it, followed by my network card not working on the xen dom0 privileged system.

I also tried the demo cd, same thing.

The troubles went away when adding kernel options "noapic acpi=off" to the modules grub line.
