KVM vs Virtualbox

So you need that old FC9 instance on your fresh F11 install.

Obviously I started a KVM instance on my desktop and installed FC9 in a Virtual Machine,
It took long to install, too long, so I looked if KVM was working correctly
Kvm was loaded but not in use ..
And then you remember why you had VirtualBox on that machine before it's upgrade . indeed, this machine was to old it was not a VT Capable machine . VirtualBox performs much better there ..

But you already have a working installed Qemu image.
What do you do ? Google tells you about vidtool but all you find are broken links ..

So you look further and you find that you can use VBoxManage for the same functionality
