edit /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp and change your network-script line to look
like this:

(network-script two-bridges)

create the file /etc/xen/two-bridges  (make sure you make it executable)

the contents should look something like this:

/etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge $@ vifnum=0
/etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge $@ vifnum=1

(the $@ will be replaced by either start or stop)

then in the xm config files (usually /etc/xen/DomUname), choose one
of the following lines:

vif=['bridge=xenbr0']  #(to put it in the bridge with eth0)
vif=['bridge=xenbr1']  #(to put it in the bridge with eth1)
vif=['bridge=xenbr0','bridge=xenbr1']  #(to give it an interface on both )

(note, only use one vif= line-  use multiple quoted strings within it if
you want more than one interface)

this will create xenbr0 on eth0, xenbr1 on eth1 -  you control which DomUs
go to which interfaces using the vif= line.
