Short version, if you're using RHEL/Centos and need the GUI:
- use virt-manager (which should give you access to domU's GUI console)
- connect vncviewer manually to domU's vnc console (use "virsh
vncdisplay NAME_OF_DOM_U" to find the port)
- read the manual :

If your goal is to configure services (mail, dns, etc.) IMHO it's
easier uf you install webmin
