All part of the primary linux philosophy of completely changing everything
anytime there is a chance that anyone might have figured out the existing
way things work :-).

On my system, I turn off NetworkManager and build (by hand) a ifcfg-br0
script to define the bridge, and make ifcfg-eth0 part of the bridge, moving
all IPADDR and such parameters to the bridge.


was the source of all my info on getting bridge to work.

One other thing - if you use iptables, and you have any rules
that explicitly mention the eth0 interface, you'll probably need
to change them to mention br0 instead, or your firewall won't be
doing what you think it is doing.
