I'll write an article when I have it right; that means I must know why it works too!

I set up a bridge from the command line each time so its different. The trick was DHCP. I have no idea what SYNCDHCP is all about, but it barfs when I use it. I have a DHCP server running on the Dom0 but I think any DHCP server will do. However, if you don't have one (more likely) you can specify the IP address on the line after the addm. I.e.

ifconfig bridge0 addm

I have it working fine, but more through luck than brains st present.
