This is a fresh, un-f#$ked-with OpenSUSE install after adding the Tumbleweed repository and doing a dup.  I installed the Hypervisor with Tools for which it prompted me for Xen or QEMU and I chose Xen.  No bridge was made.

When I go to create a fully virtualised machine, it nao has the error:

Error: Device 0 (vif) could not be connected.  Could not find the bridge, and none was specified.

The bit in the config file says:

# SuSE users note:
# On openSUSE >= 11.1 and SLES >= 11, networks should be configured using
# native platform tool - YaST.  vif-bridge and qemu-ifup can be used to
# connect vifs to the YaST-managed networks.
#(network-script network-bridge)

So... how exactly is YaST supposed to do this...? ...so I don't have to re-install OpenSUSE for the 5th time on the same machine?
