dhcpd.conf looks reasonable, at least to me:

ddns-update-style interim;

allow booting;
allow bootp;

ignore client-updates;
set vendorclass = option vendor-class-identifier;

subnet netmask {
      option routers;
      option subnet-mask;
#     range dynamic-bootp;
      filename                "/pxelinux.0";
      default-lease-time      21600;
      max-lease-time          43200;
      next-server             bread;

host label1 {
     hardware ethernet BF:CC:AC:10:00:65;
     next-server bread;

The two changes I've made to cobbler/settings are manage_dhcp and  

     ia64: /var/lib/cobbler/elilo-3.6-ia64.efi
     standard: /usr/lib/syslinux/pxelinux.0
default_kickstart: /etc/cobbler/default.ks
dhcpd_bin: /usr/sbin/dhcpd
dhcpd_conf: /etc/dhcpd.conf
httpd_bin: /usr/sbin/httpd
     ksdevice: eth0
     lang: ' '
     text: ~
koan_path: ''
manage_dhcp: 1
minimize_syncs: 1
next_server: bread
server: bread
syslog_port: 25150
tftpboot: /tftpboot
tftpd_bin: /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
tftpd_conf: /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
webdir: /var/www/cobbler
xmlrpc_port: 25151
yum_core_mirror_from_server: 1


Is there something I'm supposed to be doing to the stock xen  
configuration to enable networking for cobbler?
   I ask because even specifying an IP manually to anaconda didn't  
get me anywhere.  I also don't see something that looks like a  
network device in the kernel messages of the domU, though I admit to  
not knowing what to look for, or if it ought to be there under Xen.
