I know that you can run Xen 3.4.1 smoothly on RHEL/Centos5, with
minimal effort. Use 3.4.1 repo from http://www.gitco.de/repo/
Haven't tried F11 though.

My guess is this is related to xen's default bridge networking setup,
which does some interface renaming which (possibly) got dhcp confused.
You can try setting up bridge manually using
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* and disable xen's network
script on /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp.
