This is weird, if I use the --con0=none I get no errors at all, and I
can see the virtual machine is running with vlist. But how do I get a
terminal on the machine then ? (see full log at the end of the email)

A solution I found is to use tun/tap:
vstart pc4 --eth0=tap,, --con0=none --verbose
and attach with ssh to the virtual machine
(I did not try yet, but I can ping the machine, now I need to prepare
a netkit filesystem with ssh enabled)

also I had to modify the manage_tuntap script because there is some
iptables stuff I cannot do on PlanetLab

any better solution that use ssh and tap ?
