During install in virt-manager, I set it up for 2 cores.
(Due to lack of knowledge)

But 'top' on the host showed 200% cpu for qemu-kvm
23% when guest on init 3.

The guest had to be force killed, if Graphical Desktop,
 due to nothing responding.
since when spice-vdagent was installed on guest

Start guests with F16 install, 
as I find it easier to keep out all
the Grub2 advanced menu. (just a personal thing)
