I could reinstall, but I'd have to coordinate with my wife (it's her
schoolwork machine).

I hadn't thought of that.  I'll give it a try.  Thanks.  Install another
copy of opensuse onto one of my blank partitions, then set it up as a
hvm, right?

By "networking", do you mean our home network, or the virtual network I
see described at length in the various resources? Our home network works
fine -- I'm using Thunderbird right now to talk to you, and I have a
dozen xen-related pages open in Firefox right now. 

I see repeated references to a "bridge" system for networking the
virtual machines and letting them communicate with one another and with
the Internet.  This is one of the things I understood was created by
default when dom0 came up.
