    I am having some issues trying to get xen to see 2 new NICs I have added to the Dom0.  Whenever I try to walk through the recommended procedures I found here http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/en-US/RHEL510/Virtualization_Guide/ch-virt-bridge-errors.html 
However, I never can get the brctl to show any other device except xenbr0.  Can someone please point me to better instructions on adding additonal NICs to an existing Dom0?  Or better yet explain why following the brief instructions above does not work.
[root@basevs ~]# uname -a

Any help would be greatly appriciated!
