I’d start playing with Virtual Tools -> Virtual Machine Manager or
virt-manager (from a root shell): it gives a basic graphical interface
to this.

Two things to watch out for at the moment: if you’re using SELinux,
you’ll find that ISOs and system images need to be in
/var/lib/libvirt/images, and you might need to run
restorecon /var/lib/libvirt/images/*
Otherwise you’ll get a lot of SELinux errors.

You should also review
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=475598
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=474116
if you’re intending to run a recent Linux as guest.

Hope this helps,

James.
