to continue this:
------------- verify an amd64 install of kvm --------------
$ rpm -qa | grep kvm
$ sudo lsmod | grep kvm
kvm_amd 69416 0
kvm 226336 2 ksm,kvm_amd
yum install bridge-utils tunctl
------------- snip ---------
kvm is basically qemu.
The kvm launcher is (by default) not in your path:
request help on qemu-kvm and you will see almost the same thing which is in qemu.
Trying to learn kvm via libvirt is over-kill - stick with the commandline.
To launch a live CD do
#/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -cdrom /path-to/pup-431.iso -boot d -m 384
-net nic,model=rtl8139 -net tap -localtime -usb &
this works over ssh too if you forward X.
