I have 5 linux domU's (all sles10). Only one of them came up with the
network. The other four all have the same problem. 

One thing I noticed is on the working domU running the command "hwinfo
--netcard" contains this line:
HW Address: 00:16:3e:21:24:a7

On the domU's that are broken the command gives almost the same output,
but they are all missing the HW address line. 

Does that help?
