You could 'man sudoers', and edit /etc/sudoers, then code the script so 
that your chosen regular user could 'sudo modprobe kvm-amd' with no 

Or you could run the script as root but have it run the vm part using su 
or sudo, though the first option is probably better. :-)


PS--I'd be interested in seeing a preso/demo on setting up and using 
kvm/qemu for TurboTax for Dummies...

Microsoft has single-handedly nullified Moore's Law.
Innate design flaws of Windows make a personal firewall, anti-virus
and anti-malware software mandatory. The resulting software arms race
has effectively flattened Moore's Law on hardware running Windows.
