Thanks Greg.  I've been looking at that page, but trying to interpret it 
is a little tough.   I just found out that I didn't have bridging 
installed in my kernel.  I also needed to install bridge-utils-1.5.

The biggest problem with the www.linux-kvm.org docs is that they assume 
that you are using RedHat or Debian.  I'm trying to get down to the 
program level instead relying on scripts that make assumptions that 
don't match my system.

I also found http://compsoc.dur.ac.uk/~djw/qemu.html, but it seems to 
rely on Debian.

Continuing to research...
