Basically virt-install allows creation of "graphics" settings for the 
virt guests, though koan
isn't creating any at the moment, assuming you'll only be using xm 
console and SSH.

I can get your VNC added to koan, not a problem... though it will 
require a small software
change in koan (work pending) to do it.
