Can someone help me with setting up networking in UML?

   I am running Ubuntu 10.10 over linux

   I am compiling from source

   Source build using commands

   make defconfig ARCH=um
   make mrproper ARCH=um
   make ARCH=um

   the UML is started using
             ./linux ubda=Debian-Squeeze-x86-root_fs  umid=myuml mem=128m

   with this i am able to navigate directories and create files/folders. So  UML begins to work

For networking

   my host networking is at
   wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:16:44:a8:bf:39
             inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

   So to set up networking i use the commands at host
          host : uml_mconsole myuml config eth0=tuntap,,,

   in my UML window i see

   root@(none):~# Choosing a random ethernet address for device eth0
   Netdevice 0 (5a:66:7b:a0:86:d9) :
   TUN/TAP backend - IP =

and it is stuck at this point......

   my final aim is to be able to access internet using UML.

   Please let me know if you need any other information.
   Any help would be appreciated.
