  fair enough -- i just did a "yum search virt" to see what was out
there and i noticed those.  i was playing with some of the utilities
in virt-mem and not having much luck:

# virt-dmesg
Fatal error: exception Failure("f1164: use -W to define word size for this image")
#

  it then went on to demand i specify the architecture, endianness,
kernel text address, etc.  is there some reason it can't figure that
out?
