Well, networking *does* work if I set an IP address manually and as I can reach
it then from other machines it must be bridged. The problem is that I don't get
an IP address when using dhcp :-(
I wasn't aware that iptables is on and preconfigured in a domU that got setup
with CentOS 5.1 virt-manager. Unfortunately, shutting it off doesn't solve the
problem. Logging shows that the server gets a request from that MAC address and
offers an IP address, but the client doesn't receive it. There's no firewall
between the two, but the offer doesn't get back to the client somehow.
