thanks so much, Alex. it works for me now!

it turns out i uninstalled the dnsmasq, but it seems there is
dependency on it (why we need dnsmasq, anyway?). so i reinstalled it
again, but then disable dnsmasq service. then the default virtual
network works.

a quesiton: i imported the existent KVM image with command:

virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n winxp -r 800 --accelerate
--vnc -v --noautoconsole --import -f /home/jun/img/img.winxp

but this is not really correct, as the above command doesnt do something for me:

(1) it doesnt tell the image format (qcow2 in my case)

(2) it doesnt setup the mouse cursor (-usb -usbdevice tablet)

(3) it doesnt tell the network card model.

so questions are:

(1) can i tell virt-install of of above info? i looked at the
virt-install manual, but dont see anywhere to do that.

(2) in case virt-install cannot do that, i guess i must use another
tool to modify /etc/libvirt/qemu/winxp.xml to reflect my requirement.
but then i tried virt-manager (0.9.1), and it doesnt even let me
modify the configuration of my domain.

so which tool should i use to modify available libvirt domain?

thanks again!
