Dom0 comes up fine (Linux + Xen 3.02).
xenbr0 is ok (peth0 and vif0.0 attached).
On dom0 I made links net.vif1.0 thru net.vif7.0
to /etc/init.d/net.l0 (otherwise the hotplug stuff
does not start the vif-interface).
On dom0 I run dhcpd on eth0 (can not make him
listen on peth0, vif0.0 or xenbr0 because no
DomU-config contains vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:00:00:03' ]
and dhcpd is prepared to give a fixed ip-address to
that mac-address.
When I start domU, xend is sending dhcp-requests
on behalf of vif1.0 (or vif2.0, etc.) but does
not get an offer from dhcpd. So the domU network
does not come up (the vifn.0 IS attached to xenbr0).

What am I missing?
TIA, Hans.
