Install Xen 3.0.4 OpenSolaris DomU on SLES 10 SP1 Dom0 (64 bit)

In general installation follows [1]. However, when SLES 10 is placed on top of it's Xen 3.0.4, "ifconfig" shows network interface eth0 without any IP and brings up eth1 with original IP value been assigned to eth0. Command "brctl show" reports that virual network interfaces peth0,vif0.0 are connected to bridge xenbr0. To make OpenSolaris PVM be able to communicate with SLES 10 SP1 Dom0, i did:-

# ifconfig eth1 down
# ifconfig eth0 up "Original IP address" netmask

"brctl show" report kept it's output the same. Procedure described in [1] went smoothly
and properly built OpenSolaris DomU on SLES 10 SP1 Dom0
Start up screenshots follows bellow:-
