Description of problem:
SME review of chapter 5 found these errors and/or needed corrections:
(1) Section 5.1 virsh
(a) heavy use of 'domains', which is ok, but the doc previously used
'guests' or 'guest virtual machines' or 'guest VMs'.
(2) Section 5.2 virt-manager
(a) like other tools, should list that it's package is virt-manager,
so customers don't infer its in libvirt-client or other pkg.
(3) Section 5.3 virt-install
(a) spice is also support for graphics, so the following:
"SDL graphics, or a VNC client/server pair."
should be replaced by:
"SDL, SPICE, or VNC client/server pair graphics."
(4) Section 5.5 Other useful tools
-- it is part of libguestfs-tools-c package,
not libguestfs-tools package.
-- ditto (a)
-- *remove*; it will not make rhel6.2
-- what does "in-place" mean in the description ? -- ask rjones?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Don is strictly correct. However it is better if people
"yum install libguestfs-tools" (not libguestfs-tools-c).
libguestfs-tools requires libguestfs-tools-c. The reason
we have the package split is to allow RHEV-H to just
include libguestfs-tools-c (ie. the tools that are written
in C and don't require Perl). libguestfs-tools-c is kind
of an internal package.
I would just leave the documentation as it is.

Change: "It cannot resize disk images in-place."
to: "It works by copying the guest image and leaving the original disk image untouched."
If libguestfs-tools requires libguestfs-tools-c, then all the other references
in that section to libguestfs-tools-c should be changed to libguestfs-tools.
so the above is the needed change/bz in the doc.
Yup, I didn't notice those.
It's probably best if all references to libguestfs-tools-c
are changed to libguestfs-tools.
libguestfs-tools requires libguestfs-tools-c at installation
time so the effect is that customers will get all of the tools
installed at once.
