don't know what you try to say but I read the documentation carefully.
Probably you noticed that I supplied no MAC address and assumed that udev
creates eth1, eth2, ... instead of eth0. This is *not* true! No ethernet
at all is created in domU!

I tested various settings with OpenSuse's 3.0.3 rpms (including a fixed
MAC) and always failed! I compiled that's why Xen 3.1 (is this a stable
version? http://xen.xensource.com/ provides a link to 3.0 in "Get
Started with Xen!", the 3.1 source doesn't contain a changelog and its
Readme mentions only 3.0, also a FAQ(?) didn't mentioned 3.1 as released

Version 3.1 was also funny: My dom0 network did no longer worked (even
without a domU). The output of ifconfig and route looked good to me (I
also deactivated the firewall for tests), nevertheless I was not able
to resolve it. Doesn't Xen bridging also initiates connections between
eth0 and vif0.0? How can I check these?

After switching from bridge setup to NAT it worked well! So my problem
is now solved.
