Cool! When put in the wiki this would greatly benefit the usefulness of
the XenNetworking page.

I have one question about the following paragraph:

As of xen 3.0, there is no file named domU.sxp, and I don't see
documentation on how to create such one.
There's only the xend-config.sxp, which has nothing to do with it, I
As written in my mail before where I asked for help about that
networking stuff, my efforts trying to specify the domU ip address in
the domU's config file as described in a mail to this list beginning of
2005 were not successful at all.

Anyway, thanks! If you need help to get that info in the wiki, please
let me know.
