Yes - you definitely can...and I am...

The problem is, unless I bounce dhcpd before and guest VM work, the guests 
don't get the DHCP address...

It's weird ;)  But definitely, if I bounce dhcpd (of course after 
xend/xendomains start) everything works fine - as in the dhcp addresses 
are received by the guest VMs...
