This is especially important on machines that can't do MMIO, as all current graphics implementations qemu emulates I'm aware of so far fail here.

s390 virtual desktops?

Well - have you ever tried installing SLES / RHEL on an S390? If not, give it a shot and comment again :-)

I won't be able to until qemu support s390.

I'm pretty sure RH has some S390 lying around ...

How does it work today?

You boot into a TERM=dumb line based emulation on 3270 (worst thing haunting people's nightmares ever), trying to get out of that mode as quickly as possible and off into SSH / VNC.

Does installation over vnc work?

Yes, but it requires a working network setup. That's a pretty requirement on guests IMHO.
