at least that worked. Now :
- check iptables rules. Is it blocking packets?
- try putting IP address on dom0's eth1 (the bridge) and domUs eth0,
see if you can ping dom0 from domU. While trying that, on another
terminal do tcpdump on dom0 to snoop packets on the vif (vif6.0 on
your example) and on eth1. This should determine whether the problem
is on the bridge setup, NIC, or switch.

As a side note, you should be able to use your old, working dom0
kernel (from Etch?) on newer Xen versions, so you might want to try
that as well.
