I've been running with kernel-xen0-2.6.15-1.2041_FC5 with no problems so 
far.  However, I did have problems (thought not with IP address 
assignment) with earlier Xen builds.

You might check if you have the kernel-xen-hypervisor package installed. 
  I was having problems before when running IIRC .2032; when I upgraded 
to .2041, I removed the hypervisor package, and I've been running Xen 
fine since then.

Maybe you could post your /var/log/xend.log and /var/log/xend-debug.log; 
hopefully others might be able to help given this information.
