# Verify your system BIOS has virtualization enabled.

# Verify your kernel can run KVM:
# Intel-VT
grep vmx /proc/cpuinfo
# AMD-V
grep svm /proc/cpuinfo

# Install virtualization packages
yum install kvm qemu virt-manager

# Enable libvirtd service
service libvirtd start

Applications - System Tools - Virtual Machine Manager

# Create a new machine
Right-click localhost - New
(If you get an error when finished, just click Finish again)

# Default directory for virtual image files:
/var/lib/libvirt/images


NOTE: If mouse moves around in virtual machine slow:
Click View

Does VMM use QEMU?

How do I get a serial port assigned to a Windows VM? The add hardware choices are minimal and do not include a serial port.

I'm not sure since i've not had to use the serial port in my VM yet. However, using Google I found this link about manually configuring serial and USB pass through that might help you out.

It doesn't seem like the current libvirt and/or virt-manager support this via the GUI currently.

More on Virtual Machine Manager here: http://virt-manager.et.redhat.com/
