I did try it.  That's why I can't do it.  ifconfig -a does not show anything
but the loopback.  I used this kernel on a whitebox 4 installation.  I

somewhere that I can download?  Not afraid to try a different kernel.

I don't know about whitebox, but it's unlikely someone provides a domU
kernel without any network drivers.

It's more likely that you missed to add the initrd to your vm config,
and/or forgot to copy the modules into the image you want to boot, in
case your kernel is not monolithic. I don't know what version of xen
you are using, and who built the xen and xen-linux-kernel packages

If you cannot clear this, especially if you are new to the topic, you
better start from scratch installing xen but fiddling around with a
strange install that gave you kernels with no network support, and try
to use this with some random kernel from the net.

BTW: Did I get it right that your domU system is whitebox 4? To which
redhat/fedora version is this compatible?
