Once, i wanted to install Debian in a domU using install CD, and, I
wanted to force the installer to detec the virtual disk as being SCSI
instead of P-ATA/IDE. I was wondering if putting :sda would make qemu
understand I wanted any kind of SCSI ...

I had not phrased my first email properly.

proposed patch does not work for me.

I have good knowledge in iptables, but, not in Xen related routing and
bridging. What i know is, as I change anything in the Xen conf, domU
looses networking. After a long chat on IRC, I just ... don't understand
how Xen plays with interfaces; I finally gave up trying to understand.
Things in my host do not work like explained in tutos, and, not as the
IRC peopled explained me.

I wonder if Gentoo is hiding somewhere some if-rename call so that eth0
and peth0 are *NOT* inverted as they should be after xend have started ...
