Use DHCP, and ensure that when you create the domain configuration xml
file for the second instance that you remove the MAC address lines
before you define it in virsh so libvirt generates new MAC addresses
for the copies.

You want libvirt to be abstract from the guest, so it's not going to
be meddling around in your guest's filesystem to configure anything.
