[CentOS-virt] Can't get PCI card visible in guest

Thanks. I actually was running pygrub, and I _swear_ that the first
time I ran it, it said that the initrd was not found. I then copied it
to the host, and it ran. This actually brings me to another question/issue:
It really honestly seems to me that sometimes I was getting inconsistent
results, at least vis a vis the _current_ state of configuration files.
Also, I've had situations where I've been unable to destory machines
from the graphical virt-manager, but able to do so with xm. Yesterday,
I had a guest that didn't show up on an xm list, but showed up in the
virt-manager, constantly toggling between running and stopped.
My questions are:
1) whether either xm or virt-manager do any kind of caching of settings,
so that your current configuration might not actually be what is executed?
2) does going through the xen / grub boot process do any kind of
changing or writing of settings? Again, I swear there were times where
I got different results on the second boot than the first one.
3) finally, what would account for the differences between virt-manager
and xm, and also is there any magic way to destroy an un-destroyable
machine without having to reboot your computer?
Thanks all--this seems like a very helpful mailing list!
