Sure, this will be fixed and released shortly so you'll be able to leave 
SELinux on. I'll send an email to the list once that's done.
I obviously don't want to imply everyone should run with SELinux off 
just to get koan to work :)

It's using virtinst, which is the library behind the virt-install app.

I'll see about adding a graphics option to koan.
As I was primarily targetting servers/datacenters, this was left out 
originally, but it's easy to add and ought to be there.
