The instructions are for F9 and as such have a couple very minor
problems.  For example, I can't find lokkit for f11.  However, other
than that, I just pretty much followed the cookbook to get things
working.  I had a small problem with the networking until I noticed
that the cookbook was configured for dhcp and I use fixed IPs.  Once I
corrected for that everything worked GREAT!!!!

I looked around the site and that wiki.libvirt.org has some really
great information available.

Thanks loads.
