KVM virtualization is full of wonders. :-/

I would need to attach an USB disk to a vm, but how?

The command "qemu" would provide a way:

[root at a134-224 yum.repos.d]# man qemu-kvm

> QEMU(1)
>        qemu-doc - QEMU Emulator User Documentation
>        usage: qemu [options] [disk_image]
>        -usbdevice devname
>            Add the USB device devname.

But when I try it:

[root at a134-224 yum.repos.d]# qemu start -usbdevice host:059f:1018 mail
-bash: qemu: command not found

That command syntax is probably ot right yet, but the main question is, 
where is qemu?

I was tempted to yum-install qemu from rpmforge, but I would rather not. 
Besides the rpmforge version has a conflict with another manual page.
