Hi mika,

Would you please write something about Kvm? 
Searching the keyword Kvm didn't result good hist in mlist archive and 

I use to test new grml releases with VMware (the thing I hate most is to 
reboot my box just for the testing), but installing VMware into the newly 
installed grml every time has been a pain. 

I like to streamline the testing/using grml with kvm if possible. So I 
want to know how to install/config kvm, and test new grml releases with 


PS. for people who don't know KVM:

"KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution 
on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V 
CPU is needed). Each virtual machine has private virtualized hardware: a 
network card, disk, graphics adapter, etc. KVM is a similar to XEN, but 
KVM is part of Linux and uses the regular Linux scheduler and memory 

KVM is perfectly suited to unmodified operating systems including windows 
operating systems like Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 
Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. "
