Re: [Xen-users] Running other distros as domu under FC5/Xen 3.x

I found a reference to xennet as a possible issue why this may happen (eth0 not 
showing up)

The solution is apparently to add : 

"alias eth0 xennet" to /etc/modprobe.conf

Can someone on the list confirm if this is the case ?  (I do not have access to 
my system right now but will have to call and instruct someone to do it, so am 
checking up before hand.  apologies)
