Tun/Tap issue

hiii i am new with the tun/tap device

i installed successfully the tun/tap driver.

it appears under /dev/net/tun.

i can open it, read and write from/to it successfully.

the problem now is i want to bridge the tun/tap to eth0

BUT the tun/tap doesnt appear when i run ifconfig from the shell

My Question is how to attach the /dev/net/tun to tun0 for example so that it may appear when i run ifconfig and may bridge it with eth0 ??

thanks in advance.
