See this snippet from my prepare-new-DomU script:

### remove ugly persistent-net-rules from udev:
# debian etch
rm -f /etc/udev/rules.d/z45_persistent-net-generator.rules
rm -f /etc/udev/persistent-net-generator.rules
# ubuntu feisty ff.
rm -f /etc/udev/rules.d/75-persistent-net-generator.rules
rm -f /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

What might be nice on a desktop/laptop system with docks, hotplug cards
etc. was very irritating with xen. Alternatively, configure a fixed MAC
address in your domu-config.
