Ok, with some additional effort (http://www.montanalinux.org/spice-for-a-spin.html) I got SPICE working properly on a Fedora 14 Host with a Fedora 14 virtual machine.  I hope to make a video sometime tomorrow so folks can see how well it works before they get it going for themselves.

Next task is to get it working with RHEL6.0 and then CentOS 5.5... and eventually CentOS 6.0.
