Another particularity: the xen bridge used is named eth0. I don't
understand this choice as using a xenbrX seems to be quite a reasonable

bridge will need adaptation...

That threw me somewhat when I built a server with Lenny, having previously used Etch. Took me ages to get the networking working :-(

Didn't this come in with newer versions of Xen though? CentOS does the same. I've found poorly written applications that work better with the bridge being called eth0 though. I've had to change VirtualBox to mimic Xens strategy for that reason.

Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use Windows."
Now they have two problems.
