#uname -r

This is what I went about with Fedora 11 . I have 4Gb RAM installed in my computer and so the best way to utilise the RAM is to use PAE kernel (upto my level of expertise).

After installation start libvirt service

#service libvirtd start
#chkconfig libvirtd on

I am running windows XP as guest machine and it works like a charm , hope this helps.
