Thanks for the great suggestions, but as I'd like to manage the disk 
space through the gui, (and I'm sure other do as well):

I did  a little digging and it looks like in 
virt-manager-0.2.6-7.0.2.el5 you can change line 7849 of 
    <property name="adjustment">500 100 16000 100 500 500</property>
    <property name="adjustment">500 100 [larger number] 100 500 

Replacing the 16000 with whatever you want the max to be.


changing line 7849 in /usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.glade of version
