Bug Description

The sub-section needs to be updated, specifically the example virt-install command.
The context also needs to changed to be from the perspective of this document being a server guide, not a desktop guide. Therefore it should be written assuming no GUI. Currently it is not possible to actually do an installation based on this section without a GUI (at least that I have been able to figure out).

I am NOT a subject matter expert for this, in fact I am just learning virtualization. However, I am willing to do the editing and submit a merge proposal. Unless someone objects, I'll assign myself this bug in a day or two.

Does anybody know how to use virt-install on a true server (no GUI) such that they can connect to the virtual machine to continue the installation and connect to it after installation? I have not figured out a way. The only way I figured out was via VNC from another gui based computer.

If it is possible, I would like to document how with the edit to this section that I am starting now.
