Well, I have a Centos 6 host and a Centos 5.1 guest.

I would like that guest to take advantage of virtio.

Also, would you happen to know how I can mount qcow2 images on my host?  I would like to mount it on my host as just another directory.

I've give up for now.

Using guestfish only allows me to manipulate while within guestfish which doesn't have access to my host, only the vm image I told it to mount.

Or, should I start another thread? :)
