Dear Lazyweb: Converting a dual boot partition to a virtual machine

I’m finding a lot of instructions for Windows and VMware, but none for KVM. My workstation has a Fedora 12 i686 install that I’ve been running for years. I decided that I should install an x86_64 OS so I put on RHEL6 and I’m planning on rebuilding my environment on that. What’s the best way to get my Fedora 12 logical volume booted as a virtual machine under RHEL6 with KVM? I was hoping to do this without having to do another install but I’m not so sure now.
