NetBSD on Linode problems

I'm trying to get NetBSD installed on a Linode (Xen) VM following the
instructions on this Wiki page:

Networking works under the Finnix image, I am able to to use wget to
download the files needed, but when I boot the NetBSD installer images,
I am unable to get networking to work under NetBSD. I have tried both
32&64 bit kernels (under 32 & 64bit pv_grub). If I try and let it get
networking via DHCP, it doesn't get a response, if I use hard-coded
values, no traffic gets passed.

IP/interface info:
# ifconfig -a
        address: f2:3c:91:ae:c9:5d
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        inet6 fe80::f03c:91ff:feae:c95d%xennet0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 33184
        inet netmask 0xff000000
        inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
        inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x2

I can ping my own IP from within the booted image:

# ping -n -c3
PING ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=0.045 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=0.058 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=0.056 ms

But I can't ping my default route:

# ping -n -c3
PING ( 56 data bytes
ping: sendto: Host is down
ping: sendto: Host is down

Does anyone have any suggestions?
