0. Create a bridge interface on the host, through proxmox.
1. Create a new KVM VM.
2. In the hardware section, create a new virtio network interface.
   * attach this to the bridge seen above.
3. Install Debian in the KVM.
4. Configure 'eth0' inside the Debian VM to the desired public address.

Which is the process that works for us, as well as for giving veth based
public addresses to our OpenVZ containers.
