Hi Kent,

Is this really the best way to start the virtual machine?  You aren't
passing any parameters, other than the actual img/qcow2 to use. 
Wouldn't it be better to launch it via "virsh", using the .cfg file that
the vmbuilder generated?

Once inside virsh:
"create /path/to/image.cfg"

The the network settings you have set out will be applied to KVM as
parameters.  (Unless you want to use routed networking, which doesn't
work right IMO)

Kind Regards,
Dave Walker
