Default vboxheadless-running-virtual-machines on Hetzner eq

Hi guys
I am trying to get sun virtual box to run on my new Hetzner eq server. The problem is that i cant figure out howto assign a ip adress to the machine, i have 3 sub ipadresses who points to the servers macadress.

on hetzner they write
Bei dieser Art der IP/Subnetz-Allokierung ist es leider nicht möglich ein "Bridged"-Setup zu verwenden, da hierbei mehrere MAC-Adressen auftreten.
vServer(linux-virtualserver, Xen, vmware, etc) müssen ein sogenanntes "Routed"-Setup verwenden. Bei einem zusätzlichen Subnetz hat das Host-System bzw. die dom0 eine IP des zusätzlichen Subnetzes konfiguriert und dient für die vServer als Gateway.
Die (zusätzliche) IP des Host-Systems muss also in den vServern in jedem Fall als Gateway konfiguriert werden.
Eine Ausnahme bildet hier "openvz", welches ohne ein Gateway auskommt.
Auf dem Hostsystem bzw. der dom0 muss "ip_forward" bei jeder Virtualisierungsart aktiviert werden:
English translated at google
to use in this type of IP / subnet allocation, it is not possible a bridged setup, as this occur multiple MAC addresses.
VDS (linux-virtual server, Xen, VMware, etc) must use a so-called "Routed" setup. In an additional subnet has the host system or the IP of dom0 an additional subnet configured and serves as a gateway for the VDS.
The (additional) IP of the host system must therefore be configured in the VDS in each case as a gateway.
An exception is "openvz" which does not require a gateway.
On the host system or the dom0 must "ip_forward be on at every Virtualisierungsart:
Any help would be apreciated

As far as I can see on http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch0...etworkingmodes , there's no routed mode for vboxheadless...
