I haven't tried RHEL4U5 myself ... John Sanabria was using koan for virt 
a while back.  I'm not sure what platform.

It might be interesting to see what you get for "virsh list" and "virt 
dumpxml N" where N is 0 up to the number of virtual machines you have 
installed.  (You may have to install virsh).   Also I would be 
interested in seeing the tree of /var/lib/koan.    It's hard to tell 
from the above description, but it could be that you have a lot of 
paused/crashed domains that are causing problems for whatever reason.   
I certaintly don't have any reason as to why some machines would go 
interactive when others don't, especially during install -- I wouldn't 
think ram consumption would play a role there.

I'm about to put some heavy testing on koan's virt management support 
for something I'm working on at the moment, so hopefully I can provide 
some more insight there as well.   My apologies on not being more 
helpful with remote debugging!
