And now tell us what your real IP addresses are so that we can work
out the proper netmask, gateway etc should be.

Set it where?  if using a bridged or routed setup dom0 should NOT
use the IP addresses you want to assign to domUs; just assign them
directly to the domUs.

An IP address ending in .0 is not a valid gateway for a network with
a netmask of  Of course we can't tell if this is a

eth0 and eth0:0 are the same interface.  Either start at eth0:0 then
go to eth0:1, or else start at eth0 and then go to eth0:1.

Make dom0 use one IP address and have your domUs each use one IP
