Thanks for the help Pasi. So why use Debian network scripts in lieu of Xen scripts when the Debian wiki doesn't suggest it?
I removed 'bridge=eth0' from the network-script line but I'm still having trouble with the xen daemon. When I boot up it isn't running and when I shutdown it still hangs apparently because it's getting no response from eth0. Do I have to do something to make my change to xend-config.sxp permanent?
When I try and start up xend I see this error:
# xend start
ifdown: interface eth0 not configured
RTNETLINK answers: Device or resource busy
/etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge: line 240: sigerr: command not found

eth0 is my dom0 network interface so the problem is that it is already in use correct?
I'd recommend to disable xen network-script in /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp

and set up the required bridges using debian network scripts.
