   Installation of additional maps on my Garmin GPS requires windows or osx.
I bought a copy of win7 and want to set up kvm to install that and run the
garmin basecamp map manager.

   I've read the descriptions of kvm-kmod, qemu-kvm, and the other packages
on slackbuilds.org and need more understanding of just what I need to set up
a virtual machine and install that guest OS in it.

   The kvm-intel.ko module is present. I have qemu in

   What I understand from the descriptoin of kvm-kmod is that I don't need it
since the module has been provided by 13.37/x86_64. Is this correct?

   Do I need to install the qemu-kvm package?

   Not having run kvm before, what should I read to learn how to use it on
this Slackware host?
