I'm using KVM/Qemu with libvirt aka virt-manager. I have problems with 
WinNT and NetBSD; those hang/crash during the install. Win2k3, FreeBSD 
and OpenSolaris work just fine and I didn't try anything else yet. But 
I'm on F9 and once I have a little spare time I'll move to F11. I'll 
test it there (never qemu) if that fixes WinNT.
