Hello Phil,

thank you for your reply.

I didn't know about % virsh edit; and I'm going to look into it. Still,
it's quite simpler to edit files directly by % vim; in one hand and
documentation in the other hand.

I've actually had troubles with setting up network eg. DHCP and static
hosts (and I've actually solved it with ISC's DHCPd) or storage, I
think. I mean, not exactly VM settings, although there might have been a
few - as I recall, probably VNC password or something :)

Ok, I'm going to look at it.
