  For linux, the easier way is to mount the domU and create the network 
configuration files from the dom0 at every boot time. You can do

 mount domU
 cp network-management  domU
 chroot domU sh network-managment <ipaddresses>
 umount domU
 xm create domU

  This way you get full static ipaddresses, indistinguishable from a normal 
setup, but fully controlled from the dom0.

 OK, How do you configure multiple ipaddresses for the same ethernet card using 
dhcp? As far as redhat is concerned, the eth0:0 will not support dhcp. I don't 
need it for linux, but I think there's no other way for windows.
