I've just set up xen (3.2.1 on Debian Lenny), enabled network-bridge
in xend-config.sxp and all seems to work properly. Then I've tried a
different setup: first I've created a bond device with two phisical
nics, but then, installing xen, network stops working!

I've tried then to change the xend-config.sxp with: (network-script
'network-bridge netdev=bond0') ...nope

Is there anyone able to get xen (>3.2.1) working with bonding? If so,
can you point me to the correct way?

Yes.  I use the network-dummy script and do all the bond/bridge setup
in /etc/network/interfaces.  Works wonderfully.

Will you post me (or to the list) your setup? An anonymized extract of your /etc/network/interfaces would be great!

Thank you in advance,
