Symptom exactly the same:
	vif0.0: received packet with own address as source

Machine is a brand new CentOS 5.2 build

Failed Kernel:

dmesg | grep eth0:
eth0: ADMtek Comet rev 17 at e084e000, FE:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF, IRQ 12.

I'll confess I'm new to CentOS 5.2 so there's probably some room for 
operator error. This was the only real Xen page I found:


If there's an older kernel I need to use, that's fine. Let me know which 
one. I'm just setting things up to learn a few more skills and don't 
need the latest and greatest.
