I am using instructions from here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/XenProposed http://fosshelp.blogspot.com/2013/03/how-to-create-pv-guest-vm-on-ubuntu.html

This is what I get when I type ifconfig:

This is my /etc/network/interfaces:

 auto lo
 iface lo inet loopback

 auto xenbr0
 iface xenbr0 inet dhcp
 bridge_ports eth0
 auto eth0
 iface eth0 inet dhcp

When I type brctl show I get:

bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
xenbr0          8000.00269e586818       no              eth0

based on what I have read it seems I did everything OK, but when I am trying to install the guest PV I get the "Network autoconfiguration failed" and "the Bad archive mirror An error has been detected while trying to use the specified Ubuntu archive mirror."

I think I've done my homework can anyone help me? How can I setup my pv guests? Did I do the network bridging correct? Can it be for the firewall? Any idea what I have done wrong?
I've seen in the video of that blog that his ip change from 192.168.1.5 to 192.168.1.10 but my ip didn't change? I am connected to the net with one ethernet cable to eth0.

????

Thanks
