[virt-tools-list] Few small virt-tools.org patches



Hi,

attached are three small patches for virt-tools.org:

1) Add a tip to check about hw virtualization support in case of issues
in the "Installing a virtual machine with virt-manager" page

2) Add a quick tip for the impatient reader in the "How to check if your
hardware supports virtualization" page

3) Fix VMware spelling in two pages

Do these changes look ok?

Cheers,
