I currently have a RH 5.1 Dom0 that has one onboard NIC.  I have created 2
RH virtualized guests and they are both using that same NIC.  I would like
to add one or two other NICs and have the guests use those instead of the
onboard NIC.

Can someone point me to information or assist me with the process of how to
add new NICs to existing xen guests?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

What you need is in the xen config script in /etc/xen.  Look at the
networking section... it gives a really clear explanation on how to
configure multiple bridges and ethernet interfaces...

I've done this before with 16 bridges, each using one of 16 ethernet
devices, and it seems to work.

Has anyone worked through setting up pair bonding for Xen? I tried it once, and got rather bogged down, but the issue may have been my upstream switches (over which I had no control!)
