communicate debian etch wit other OS via qemu

Hi, my main OS is debian etch, I installed FreeBSD 6.2 and WinXP using qemu images, so, I need to those virtual OS can communicate with debian using:
1. An apache server that I have bring up in debian
2. the 3 OS can do "ping" between them: debian->XP, BSD->DEbian, etc

my question is:
a) is this possible?
b) how can I setup the nics and the ips?

thanks a lot

It's possible. You'll need VDE so that all the guest OS can ping each other (guest to another guest communication).

The user mode network stack (what you have now, Qemu's default) supports networking from guest to host OS and vice versus -- has its own built in NAT and built in Samba and DHCP server.

command line switches used in the Qemu command line activates many of those mentioned built ins.
