I can't install kvm on CentOS.

I got these errors:

[root@localhost etc]# yum groupinstall kvm -y
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: ftp.tlk-l.net
* epel: ftp.tlk-l.net
* extras: ftp.tlk-l.net
* rpmforge: ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de
* updates: ftp.tlk-l.net
Setting up Group Process
Checking for new repos for mirrors
epel/group_gz | 201 kB 00:00
Warning: Group kvm does not exist.

No packages in any requested group available to install or update

I also tried

[root@localhost etc]# yum install kvm
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: ftp.tlk-l.net
* epel: ftp.tlk-l.net
* extras: ftp.tlk-l.net

* updates: ftp.tlk-l.net
Setting up Install Process
No package kvm available.
Error: Nothing to do

Is there a kvm package for CentOS?

Install the Virtualization groups:

yum groupinstall Virtualization "Virtualization Client" \
    "Virtualization Platform" "Virtualization Tools"

That will get you the qemu-kvm, qemu-kvm-tools, libvirt, python-virtinst, and virt-manager packages, and a bunch of others. Pretty much everything you need to get VM's up and running under KVM.
