Let's assume that your own IP is 192.168.1.1, your gateway is 192.168.1.254 and your network is 192.168.1.0/24. You should make a bridged interface on your host machine, like this in /etc/network/interfaces file auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto br0 iface br0 inet static address 192.168.1.1 network 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 ...

See http://wiki.xen.org/xenwiki/RHEL6Xen4Tutorial for a tutorial and a list of required RPMs. This tutorial says: As a default RHEL6 does NOT: RHEL6 does not ship Xen hypervisor or tools. RHEL6 does not ship Xen dom0 capable kernel. ...

Ex:- with virt-install -v ensures hvm machine and -p gives you a paravirtualized machine. With linux also one needs to enable VT support if present. Yes Yes. With VT enabled and type of VM chosen the virtualization type changes ...
