This allows you to create KVM guests _inside_ a Fedora 18 VM. You'll want to install the latest virt packages from

virt-preview (linked above). Install a Fedora 18 guest (there are test cases below that walk you through it).
# Install the latest virt packages from virt-preview using the instructions above.

Then use virt-manager to 'copy host CPU' for your VM. Boot the VM, yum groupinstall @virtualization, and

verify that nested virt is working (sudo virt-host-validate).

In Fedora 18, we are using [http://libvirt.org libvirt] to launch the appliance, and [http://selinuxproject.org/page/SVirt sVirt] + SELinux to make everything [http://libguestfs.org/guestfs.3.html#security much more secure].  Therefore it's better (though not required) if you can run these tests with SELinux set to enforcing.
