Hi Hari,

If you have set up a bridge on the host, the VM will join and request an 
address if you have the image set up to obtain an address via dhcp. If 
you don't control the dhcp server, you can insert a short script into 
your machine's startup files to send you the IP address it obtained.

Qemu needs a network configuration script for each vlan. Is this 
mentioned in the documentation? Here's a sample one for a vlan 272 and 
bridge called br272.
cirrus2u20:~# more /etc/qemu-ifup.272

#echo $* >/tmp/args
/sbin/ifconfig $1 up
/usr/sbin/brctl addif br272 $1
exit 0
