That said, AFAIK kqemu doesn't perform anywhere near as well as KVM, also
because kernel code is still emulated entirely in software (there's an
experimental -kernel-kqemu option which tries to use kqemu also for
kernel-space code, but all I ever got out of that option is VM crashes).

Thanks Kevin

The machine I wanted to use to try things out does not have KVM support
which is why I asked.... but it seems just possible that a VM might work
with qemu/kqemu even without kvm though I will have to just try it and see
what happens - and although slower than kvm maybe it would not so bad that
it is unusable.  On the machine in question I am happy to play and if it
does not work then it is not a major loss - but worth learning on!

Slower, but it does work. I installed the 64bit FC10 in a virtual machine on a 32 bit system, and while it was a bit "leisurely" during the install, it did finish and will boot. I'm looking forward to FC11 and a 64bit kernel on a 32bit install. Best of both worlds.
