Hi, libvirt is packaged in every modern distribution and you shouldn't find any 
difficulty in installing it by using your package management system. If you 
found troubles in the default installation of libvirt you should probably report 
this to the BTS of your distribution.
The default installation doesn't obviously create any virtual machine (guest, in 
the terms of libvirt). I found very easy to use libvirt in conjunction with 
virt-manager utils, and this ubuntu guide [1] explain how to use it exactly in 
that way. There may be a similar guide for RHEL or fedora. Get the proper 
networking configuration for guests is often a tricker part and I found this 
page very useful [2]. Specific documents in libvirt home site and wiki may help 
you in other topics.

Please moreover consider that libvirt is cool and extremely powerful (and often 
easier to use from the sysadmin perspective) but there may be other 
virtualizations solutions more suitable for you.
