[Xen-users] Network routing setup problem; domU won't start

Hi.  I'm new to Xen.  I have an Athlon (XP 2700+) box, running Ubuntu
7.10, on which I'm hoping to run several domains in a routed networking

My initial setup of xen-utils-3.1 (version 3.1.0-0ubuntu18) went just
fine, and my dom0 is running without problems.  And I was also able to
use xen-create-image to build a guest virtual machine, which (once it
works) I plan to use as a template image for building my other domains.

But when I try to run this new VM as a domU, using "xm create", it
fails with the following error message:

Error: Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. /etc/xen/scripts/vif-route
failed; error detected.

Here's some info about my setup -- hopefully enough to help someone see
whatever it is that I'm doing wrong.

Here's my xend-config.sxp file (with comments stripped out):

(xen-api-server ((unix)))
(xend-http-server yes)
(xend-unix-server yes)
(xend-relocation-server no)
(xend-port 8000)
(xend-address '')
(xend-relocation-hosts-allow '')
(network-script network-route)
(vif-script vif-route)
(dom0-min-mem 196)
(dom0-cpus 0)

Here's my xen-tools.conf file (again, with comments stripped out):

lvm = vg1
install-method = debootstrap
size = 20Gb
memory = 384Mb
swap = 1024Mb
fs = ext3
dist = etch
image = sparse
gateway =
netmask =
broadcast =
accounts = 1
kernel = /boot/vmlinuz-`uname -r`
initrd = /boot/initrd.img-`uname -r`

Here's the configuration file for my domU:

kernel      = '/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-xen'
ramdisk     = '/boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-xen'
memory      = '384'
root        = '/dev/hda1 ro'
disk        = [ 'phy:vg1/template-disk,hda1,w', 'phy:vg1/template-swap,hda2,w' ]
name        = 'template'
vif         = [ 'mac=f2:01:72:31:53:ff, ip=' ]
on_poweroff = 'destroy'
on_reboot   = 'restart'
on_crash    = 'restart'

Here's the output from "cat /proc/cpuinfo":

Here's the output from "uname -a":

Linux whodunit 2.6.22-14-xen #1 SMP Mon Oct 15 00:35:38 GMT 2007 i686 GNU/Linux

And here's the excerpt from /boot/grub/menu.lst that I used to boot Xen:

title           Xen 3.1 / Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-xen
root            (hd0,0)

module          /initrd.img-2.6.22-14-xen

Any suggestions?
