Because if every domain could use all hardware directly you would end up
in a big mess (imagine playing mpeg in all domains ;), so they have
virtual partitions and virtual NICs which look different than the real

Stop using kudzu within a domU:

  chkconfig kudzu off

If you want to use the same partition natively (=not as domU) with
kudzu, you could define different runlevels (say 4=within domU,
5=native), delete kudzu from runlevel 4 (chkconfig --level 4 kudzu off)
and tell xen to boot the domU into runlevel 4 (extra+=" 4").

Learn to configure fedore networking by hand. RH9 manual is still valid:
