I believe SPICE can be done manually but I have yet to find any good instructions on how to do it.  Even in Fedora 14 it is a manual process that I haven't figured out yet.  Expect Fedora 15 to include SPICE support integrated into virt-manager and virt-viewer... and RHEL 6.1 to follow shortly thereafter.  That's my guess anyway.

Thank you!

Can not wait for CentOS 6.0.  Hmmm, an excuse to upgrade my machine!
