hardy ubuntu-vm-builder with kvm and virtio 
First get ubuntu-vm-builder from http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/ubuntu-vm-builder

#> dpkg -i ubuntu-vm-builder_0.6_all.deb

I suggest to use approx for caching packages

#> sudo apt-get kvm libvirt-bin

#> sudo adduser `id -un` libvirtd (and relogin)

To have a working virio inside the guest i patched:
--- /usr/share/ubuntu-vm-builder/templates/libvirt.tmpl.orig

Upgrade to Hardy Kubuntu 
* enable port tcp 80 forwarding on your firewall

because adept_manager connects directly to http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/adept/+bug/153016/comments/13

* kdesu "adept_manager --dist-upgrade-devel"

if you use a proxy like approx stop adept_manager after changing /etc/apt/sources.lists and rewrite to

deb http://proxy:9999/ubuntu/ hardy-security universe main multiverse restricted
deb http://proxy:9999/ubuntu/ hardy-updates universe main multiverse restricted
deb http://proxy:9999/ubuntu/ hardy main universe multiverse restricted

and start it again.

after upgrade done add
deb http://proxy:9999/medibuntu hardy free non-free

to /etc/apt/sources.lists

on my proxy /etc/approx/approx.conf:
ubuntu          http://ubuntu.inode.at/ubuntu
medibuntu http://de.packages.medibuntu.org
