None of my systems use qemu-KVM. I think you are confused regarding a
Virtual Machine. I need none of those to access & use; in fact I've 3
WinXP VM's up now. All I need to do is switch to the desktop window that
is running the VM. There is *no* RDP, *no* VNC, *no* qumu-KVM involved.
None. Nadda. Zip.

Because I'm not sure just what you want explained. I can access all of
my ports, network, etc., with my VM's. These include SCSI, USB, HDMI, etc.

I wasn't disputing that; I was questioning if/what you know what you are
talking about regarding VM's. Do you actually have any installed?
