Default Virtualization With KVM On A CentOS 5.2 Server

Thank you for another excellent guide, Falko. I followed your directions on using KVM with CentOS, but with CentOS 5.3. I also used a Windows Vista guest in my testing. To do this I had to search for a newer RPM of KVM84, as the Vista installer wouldn't boot due to an ACPI bug in the archaic version of KVM in the CentOS repository.

After that minor hiccup, everything is running great with the exception of networking. My Vista guest is unable to obtain an IP address. Googling older posts lead me to believe it was the default rtl8139 emulation and Vista's built-in driver, but I experience the same issue having forced e1000 in the guest's XML. Your guide walked though how to configure bridged networking, but I'm not sure it is implied this configuration would allow Windows guests to see the ineternet / hosts local network. Or perhaps that is only part of the puzzle?

Any thoughts, ideas or other input?
