[drbd-mc] Small problem with VM creation om KVM based installations using LCMC

Hi Rasto,

I started testing the VM part of LCMC and stumbled upon a small problem.

I created a VM and started it and got:

error: Failed to start domain blah
error: internal error unsupported driver name 'file' for disk

I found that during Installation Disk selection the driver name
defaults to: file

But kvm/qemu based vm's don't understand that and should read qemu
(and qemu only), so maybe if VM type of KVM/QEMU was selected the
installation disk type File should always have the driver name of qemu
to prevent mistakes.

Furthermore LCMC doesn't complain when adding a VM without having
libvirt installed, i guess there is no check whatsoever if libvirt is
installed when adding a VM? Maybe a good idea?

Kind regards,

Caspar Smit
