It can run on the console of the host machine if you want, or it can run 
remotely.  It is also cross-platform, so from a windows box you can run 
the console of a guest on a linux server or vice-versa.  Personally I 
prefer to connect directly to the guest with any of the remote access 
methods you'd use on a physical box after the install is complete, 
though.  Ssh, remote X, NX, remote desktop, etc. are nicer once you can 
use them.
