	Very much, thanks. I tried both grep commands (what I know of 
hardware would go in a gnat's eye.), got something very like the one 
above, did "yum install kvm virt-manager," and got both plus ten 
dependencies.

	Is there a better way to get started than a man page?

	Should I be getting rid of wine, or of the wine-install of the 
programs I have?

	Is there a way to get XP off my other hard drive, instead of a CD 
or DVD?
