I'm more familiar with KVM than I am Xen; I've managed to get QEMU/KVM 
virtual machines up and running, I'm just concerned about the bridging 
angle. Although I haven't done any configuring yet, I'm not as sure of 
myself when it comes to Xen, and have only dabbled a bit.

That said, if Xen will let me accomplish this with minimum fuss, then 
I'll happily switch to that for this virtual box. Is there anything in 
particular I need to look out for with Xen?
