why changing distribution, debian does it very well. for performance reason
I just defined a bridged interface:

auto br0
iface br0 inet static
        bridge_ports    eth0
        bridge_stp      on
        bridge_maxwait  0

vif             = [ 'bridge=br0,mac=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx' ]

(network-script 'network-bridge antispoof=yes')
(vif-script vif-bridge)

thanks walter

Though I did use Debian also in past but it simply has made things more
difficult to do.
There is some thing known as virt-viewer install it on your Debian and
create all your VMs and their settings etc from there.My sincere suggestion
to you will be to go with CentOS or some thing RHEL kind of thing if you are
