I agree. This is a very poor piece of documentation. Basically it is
just a collection of descriptions of tools and parameters. It does not
give any insight about various concepts and it does not help at all to
choose the right solution

I ran across the same problem. Looks like Centos is setting up a NAT
network rather than a bridged network by default. It appears that the
host is acting as a DHCP server for the virtualized machines.

Hope this helps.
