Tried it today on a server with VT support enabled using the 
"virt-install" (as I prefer console based tools) tool on Fedora 10 (64 
bit) host. Tried the instructions as available at 
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Virtualization_Quick_Start. Tried to 
install a RHEL3 (32 bit) guest.

Did not work out, the attempt failed with the script existing with 
errors as below :.

File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 892, in 
createLinux     if ret is None:raise 
libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self) libvirtError: 
socket closed unexpectedly

Any pointers to tried and tested Howto's / Guides would be helpful.
