Fedora 13 Live CD:
qemu-kvm -cdrom ./Fedora-13-i686-Live-XFCE.iso -boot d -m 384 -net
nic,model=rtl8139 -localtime -usb
Froze up at "automatic boot in 10 seconds". This is probably because my
CentOS 5.5 is 32 bit and I am running a really old version of qemu-kvm.
BartPE (Windows XP Personal Edition on a CDROM):
qemu-kvm -cdrom ./KAS7.Bart.iso -boot d -m 384 -net nic,model=rtl8139
-localtime -usb -smp 2
Ran very well. Even found my rtl8139.
I have to work on the TAP device thing.
