I'm partial to examples on stuff like this, so as I work through this I intend to add some; for example, under the creation of the image:  You can name the image whatever you would like, and likely set the size in GB, so the command to create an image named "arch-standard" with a size of 10G would be:  qemu-img create -f qcow2 arch-standard.qcow2 10G    This will create an image in your current directory; this image file will not be 10G, but something substantially smaller.

Because the QEMU-KVM fork of QEMU has been deprecated/obsoleted as of QEMU 1.3 [http://wiki.qemu.org/KVM] (about 9 months ago as of this writing [http://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=tags]) and QEMU is now on version 1.6, we should strongly consider merging the [[KVM]] article into the main article for [[QEMU]]. A separate article for the KVM fork made sense historically, but now that the fork has been merged upstream, we should just keep everything on one page.
  
The link about the virtio vda devices seems to be out-of-date information.  This issue has since been patched.  I have a brand new arch guest installation (2013.06.01 media) with a virtio disk, and it works beautifully.  I removed the note.

Merge KVM article into QEMU

Because the QEMU-KVM fork of QEMU has been deprecated/obsoleted as of QEMU 1.3 [1] (about 9 months ago as of this writing [2]) and QEMU is now on version 1.6, we should strongly consider merging the KVM article into the main article for QEMU. A separate article for the KVM fork made sense historically, but now that the fork has been merged upstream, we should just keep everything on one page.

Does anyone disagree?
