There is a small bug in how syslinux displays it's gui and KVM right now. If you hold shift while booting the guest you'll get the text syslinux. Or you can just focus the guest and hit enter (a couple times?) and you'll see the kernel/initrd loading and the installer start. Jeremy Katz has been looking into this and I do believe he has it bisected down to a single patch and is working up a fix hopefully. The other thing you can do if you really want to see the graphical boot loader is to call kvm-qemu with -std-vga -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
