Stil more pain, esp. since they decided to drop system-config-display,
which would always get you at least a minimal working video.

May I strongly recommend yesterday's XKCD<http://xkcd.com/963/>? Talk
about timely....


I am down to just a call to supermicro, which will probably be a waste.
After that I think buying a cheap 'more compatible' vga card for the box 
might solve the problems.
My last way out is to bite the bullet and install xorg/gnome/etc and 
hope it does not crash the guests.

Obviously centos 6 is pretty new, KVM is fairly new in a way (everyone 
does zen), its linux (<argh>),
and KVM googles don't work so well with KVM switches out there..lol

Not sure of the path here, I know continually reinstalling, repackaging, 
playing with grub, etc...cannot be
the way intended for a brand new install just to install a guest via 
command line.
I am thinking new video card.

First time sorely disappointed with supermicro...very disappointed 
unless they have a fix.
