I am a Windows and Ubuntu user and just turn to Fedora, I want to use Virtual Machine in Fedora but I do not know how should I do, could you like to help me? I have used VirtualBox in Windows and ubuntu, but it is really very slow when boot up a virtual machine, so I want to turn to KVM-qemu, my computer is also very old with 2GB RAM, 320GB hard disk, CPU amd dual 2.0.

There are several good tutorials, i was using and . You should be able to deploy virtual Fedora guests as . Sometimes a slow boot of a virtual machine (and more likely a failure to boot) is a question of disabled virtualization settings in the bios. I need also to warn you: be ready for several reinstallations of the host due to configuration mess - e.g on some networks enabling stp on the bridge will cut you away, etc.

First of all, you can not expect, your computer will turn into a rocket. If it's slow with VirtualBox, it won't be much faster when using qemu

you should install virt-manager

yum install virt-manager

Do I need install kvm and qemu? Thanks.

If your CPU supports virtualization, you should install qemu-kvm, which will pull in all the other stuff.
