My scripts look different than yours. Have you included an alias in
modprobe.conf? (alias br0 bridge). Does lsmod show "bridge?" Have you
followed the following:

	# brctl addbr br0
	# brctl addif br0 eth0
	# brctl addif br0 eth1
	# ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
	# ifconfig eth1 0.0.0.0
	# ifconfig br0 ip.address.here
