Yes, but I thought my problem was in the initial building phase.  From
reading the list and the xen wiki and the suse wiki, I had the
impression that things should just work except in special edge cases,
and I must be in one of the edge cases. 

And not being a systems administrator, "network scripts" looks scary
:-).  Even without that, the error saying that my domU doesn't even
exist seems to imply that I haven't gotten as far as needing to work on
networking.  So that isn't so? the domU won't even be created without a
configured network?

Back to the wikis, I guess.
