I installed qemu v 0.6 from a Mandriva repository. The program itself works fine (I booted a FreeDOS img from qemu's web site. When I try to run the following command...

qemu -boot d ./winxp.img

I get the following error:

CDROM boot failure code : 0003
Boot from CD-Rom failed
FATAL: Could not read the boot disk

I have tried two different CDs (both of which I know work as I have recently used them to install an OS on another computer. I have also tried installed v 0.7 (compiling it from source) and it still doesn't work.

Any ideas?
