Kai, I read the Xen list and the way your doing it (the last option)
looks like something I may try for testing in VMs. Although I do want to
say Virtual Box does that very same behavior that you first described in
your post.
When you start up Virtual Box it takes out my eth1 and I am left with
eth0. Makes eth1 Brigded if that makes sense to you like Xen was doing.
I have to say it really seems like a better solution the way your doing
it now. In fact I am going to give it a try also. It may be a little
more effort into doing it but the approach is much better.

Indeed also I when I installed Xen I had to manually take out peth0 when
I uninstalled it.
