I apologise for asking a networking question, I seen a few of them in
the FAQ, the wiki, the forum and the mail list, but I am stumped and
about to give up, and am hoping that you might be able to help.
I use Debian and want to run a number of full KVM guests each with its

have yet to get this working.
In the attempt below I found that the client still had a dhcp private
What should I be trying to do in order to get a full KVM debian guest?
tips or pointers to the relevant documentation much appreciated,
