generally, you don't mess with xen networking withing the interfaces
file. You specify it within the conf files for the domU's, and xen
will build all the bridges you need. Ok, so yes, you could set up the
interfaces within the domU, but there's more to it than that.
Can you specify what else you have done to set up this networking?
