After patiently waiting for 30+ hours during install attempts with the "Virtual Machine Manager", I realized that it wasn't going to happen.
So then I read about a possibly working version, qemu-kvm
How to use this to get a VM install up and going ?
For instance, this command appears to begin an install, but where does it actually create a vm image from that?
qemu-kvm -m 512 -cdrom /iso/Fedora-14-i386-DVD.iso
