recently I started to play with xen. Therefore I got a new system and installed Centos 5.1 with the virtualisation packages (xen 3.1 etc.)

Setting up a Centos 5.1 Guest using the virtual manager tool works like a charm, the guest boots has network access, can install updates from the internet - so far so good.

Now I was looking at the network configuration and was confused. How dose the IP configuration of the client is set up? After my basic installation the guest uses dhcp.

Until now I haven't found any answer to my question how I may configure the host and the guest(s) to use fixed ip addresses from the lan the server is located on. I fount a lot of web pages, pdfs etc, but all looks somhow different :-) (O.K. the host can be )

E.g. I'd like the host to have the ip, the guests should have the ip, .12 and .13 ...

I'm not affraid to use vi to configure the guest or edit configfiles; using the virtual manager tool was just the first start.

So any help or point to the helpfull how to is welcome.

Thanks and best regards
