  i'll have to follow up on this when i have a bit more time, but i'm
looking for online docs on virtualization on fedora, right from the
newbie level and up.  in a nutshell, later this year, i might be
giving a seminar on how to start playing with virtualization, and i
want to be able to hand out some beginner-level stuff on how to take a
fresh f11 install, and do at least the basics with virtualization.

  does such a doc exist?  and by "doc", i mean a gentle intro for
people who truly don't know much (if anything) about virtualization.

  and yes, i realize this is getting off-topic so feel free to reply
to me offline if you'd prefer.
