What is the Dom0 OS and version?  Some distro's of Linux
(Debian) changed the network backends supported in Xen.

NetBSD 5.1-STABLE supports the newer Xen backend, while
5.1-RELEASE and before do not.. :(

So, what is the version of NetBSD you're attempting to use?

FYI: I've had good luck with NetBSD Xen hosting at Panix and
GPLHost (Singapore)

(sometimes I wonder if I should establish a NetBSD Dom0 based
Xen hosting service.. I know of no one providing such a service.)
