I have a little strange problem.

I have two eth0 and eth1 on dom0 , eth1 is private .

on dom0 i dont want to allocate IP ln eth0 but want domUs to use it as
bridge with Ips.

does it make sense ? any suggestion ?


It very well makes sense and as other people have pointed out I also
want to say that use a gui
virt-manager for this that way you will save yourself a lot of time.
I have a correctly configured bridge which looks like this
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth2
iface eth2 inet manual

auto br0
iface br0 inet static
        # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
        dns-search myserver.net
        bridge_ports eth2
        bridge_fd 9
        bridge_hello 2
        bridge_maxage 12
        bridge_stp off

if you note above output I am using eth2 i.e. third lan card in my
bridge I believe that if I want to use my other lan cards
then in line where I mention

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet manual

I will replace the word manual by static (or what ever relevant)
and then write rest of the configuration.
I will recommend you  this page to understand what the word inet
manual in above line refers to

Make sure you do not bring the other lan card with this bridge so as
to be a part of your private network.
