That's correct, but Pascal's setup is very much overkill for a new user.
You can just put something like 'eth0=ethertap,tap0,,192.168.0.254' on
the command line, and when you ifconfig the device in UML, the uml_net
helper will automaltically insmod the module, ifconfig the tap device, and
set up a route and arp on the host.
Once you can ping the host, you just run X clients against the host X server
just like you do over the physical net.
And once you've got that working, you can run Xnest as a client to your
host X server in the same way, set your DISPLAY to :0, and run X clients
on the virtual Xnest server which is now the UML's local display.
