yes, I meant to write "Xen < 3.2".

Before going to the new Xen I tried to use this explanation for building a 
bridge for xend, but it doesn't work for me at all :-(
Unfortunately, bridge interfaces are missing from the Red Hat Deployment 
Guide, I'm still looking for a guide about what can be used in bridge ifcfg 
files. What I see on the net looks completely different.

Oh, and you were absolutely right about the routing. I changed the default 
gateway to fit the public subnet and added a static route for the private 
subnet and now the additional src in ip route list is gone. Didn't change that 
the DHCPOFFER doesn't get back to the VM, though :-(
