In fact, these drivers are not especially for el6/c6, but for KVM, in
general. I use them with KVM 0.14, with windoxs 2003R2, 2008 and 2008
R2, and they work fine (on Proxmox,, based on Debian...) . On the iso, I
use the virtio-net drivers from 'Vista' for 2008 R2 and from win7 for
viostor (virtio disk).
Fedora does not supply officially drivers for server versions of
windows, but in fact Vista, 7 or XP (for 2003) works fine with 2008
R2... Just try, you can come back to non virtio drivers (e1000) if
something looks wrong...
