In this tutorial I’ll be guiding you through setting up a headless Ubuntu 11.10 box that you’ll manage using virt-manager, accessed via X11. My main machine is a Mac running OSX Lion. You’ll need the Ubuntu CD, and for the first part of the tutorial, physical access to the box with a keyboard and monitor. **Install Ubuntu on your server. ** I installed Ubuntu Desktop so I could mess with virt-manager before I disconnected everything.
