I'm assuming that by "ZEN" you mean "XEN", and that you have the xend
service running?  If so, your physical eth$N would actually have been
renamed to peth$N, and a new virtual eth$N (corresponding to one of the
veth devices above) introduced to bridge the xen networking to the
physical device.  

"brctl show" should show the bridging config: eg.

# brctl show
bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
xenbr0          8000.feffffffffff       no              peth0

shows one peth0 physical device being used by the Xen network bridge
(peth0 will have a corresponding eth0 attached to it via vif0.0), and an
extra vif4.0 virtual device for the one extra Xen domU I've got running
on that box right now.
