There is no *official* -net tap option, but there is a patch for it.  However, 
if you are choosing to go the OpenVPN route, there is no need to use the -net 
tap option at all.  What you need to do is install your guest OS, then 
install the OpenVPN client onto your guest and connect it to your host.  Once 
that is completed, your network will work properly.  You made the correct 
choice to use bridging in order to get your networking set up.
