> Did you specify also the given IP in your DomU?

Yes.  Here's the /etc/network/interfaces file on my domU:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

 # post-up  ethtool -K eth0 tx off

# The commented out line above will disable TCP checksumming which
# might resolve problems for some users.  It is disabled by default

I don't see anything in the log files on my dom0 that appear to be
error messages about networking.  And when I mount the domU's disk
to examine it (when the domU is down), there isn't ANYTHING AT ALL
written to any of the domU's /var/log files (except /var/log/wtmp)
since I originally created the domU's disk image a few days ago.
