You may also want to consider using virt-install (command line) or
virt-manager (gui) for creating new VMs, since those are also Fedora
packages that attempt to make this easier.

Hum if this is a case perhaps it's best to file a bug report and ask for
the default value to be increased to 512 MB
I know that virt-manager has a 512MB default, but am not sure whether
virt-install has the same default as qemu, or whether this warrants a
bug report for both qemu and virt-install.
