[CentOS-virt] P2v - Clonezilla method

I would need to migrate systems from physical machines to kvm.

I am interested in the "Clonezilla method":


One question, though. How can one boot a kvm guest to Clonezilla?
The only way I found was using qemu-kvm like this:
> qemu-kvm  –hda linux.img  –m 512  -boot,order=dc

Qemu (which provides this command) is not installed by default on my 
CentOS5.6 kvm host. Is it safe to install it, and use qemu-kvm commands?
