Or just download the USB image, "burn" it on an empty USB stick using "dd"
and try it out! All you need is an empty USB stick with around 512 MB 
capacity (they should cost just a few bucks). If you want to test whether 
your motherboard works with DragonFly, using KVM will not work, as it will 
emulate parts of the hardware.
