That sounds interesting. Maybe you can point to a good resource where I can learn more about that?

I've just posted a HowTo: Using virt-manager to run Virtual Machines

It is possible to use virt-manager instead of virt-viewer, but I haven't investigated...

Yes it is a bit confusing, sorry. It was just a quick answer because you wanted some pointers.  I said I hadn't investigated!

$ apropos virt*
...
virt-manager     - display the virtual machine desktop management tool
virt-viewer      - display the graphical console for a virtual machine

And I'm grateful smile Gotta get reading to learn how to use that. Would be nice to try to run VMs w/o VBox.

Re: Multiboot advice (partitioning, file systems etc.)

Have a search for HowTo's by Head_on_a_Stick... he has done one about using QEMU and KVM: Virtual BunsenLabs with QEMU & KVM

I found that more difficult than the virt-manager approach personally.

Thanks, more reading :-D

I've only played with VBox and VMWare, but have always been interested in KVM/QEMU. It sounds kinda logical that a direct kernel-based virtualization would be performancewise superior to any solution that provides it via a separate application running on top of the OS. I'd also imagine it's a tad more demanding for the user :-)
