To David , NIX , Camargo , Chris
and others who helped ,
Apparently the problem has been solved .
It really is as simple as
1. Install the bridge .
2. copy resolv.conf over to UML
3. setup ifcfg-eth0 as in your host .( gateway etc. same as on host .)
I must have typed something wrong here so it didn't work , gave up
on it etc .
Not really sure where I went wrong to tell the truth .
4. linux eth0=tuntap,tap0 .
Note that MASQUERADING and ip-forwarding are not needed as far as I can
I am able to ping UML from other networked computers .
Sorry for the trouble , thanks again .

the UML (i.e., if it's going to be a router or a firewall or something
