Are you changing the default 'netdev' at the top of the network script?

I take it that if you try and get it to work on eth1 it fails?

BTW: I'd like to see a few changes in the way this stuff works anyhow.

Firstly, rename network to network-bridge.

Next, I'd make it such that it's possible to have multiple
network-script lines, each with parameters e.g. something like:

(network-script ( network-bridge ( bridge xen-br0 ) ( netdev eth0 ) ) )
(network-script ( network-bridge ( bridge xen-br1 ) ( netdev eth1 ) ) )

[having multiple interfaces should result in multiple vif0.x and vethX

And then the vif-script along with default parameters e.g.

( vif-script ( vif-bridge ( bridge xen-br0 ) ( antispoof no ) ) )

Do others agree?
Could someone work up a patch?
