brctl in the bridge-utils package
You can do this using the Fedora/Redhat sysconfig setup rather than
twiddling w/ brctl by hand, the advantage being that
/etc/init.d/network does the right thing. See that the bridge "device"
gets the IP address, and the ethernet devices are bound to the bridge:
I assume there are equivalents for Debian/Ubuntu network scripts, etc.
