The networking options depend on whether you're running as root or a normal
user. If as root, then the new VM wizard will give an option of bridging to
a physical device (assuming ethN is a member of a bridge), or attaching to
a virtual network (which is a isolated bridge + NAT to the public LAN). If
run as non-root, then its not possible to create 'tap' devices so virt-manager
will automatically use the SLIRP networking without prompting.

We don't expose those options in the UI yet - they're future work...
