Running Windows Server 2003 under qemu in a secure Linux sandbox


Does anyone know if it would be possible to do this? I read of people who have run Windows Server 2003 under qemu.. but i was wondering if i could get it easily to work in a secure sandbox, so i could run it as a internet server - knowing that it was secure and no one could then hack my computer.

What do you mean - a secure sandbox? If you make a Windows configuration error and your virtual server gets cracked, it is not easy to crack Qemu, too, and so host system will probably (there is nothing you can be absolutely sure in when you deal with malicious third parties) be unharmed. But you virtual Windows server will be under attacker's control at least until you redeploy original VM image (and probably afterward, too, if you do not fix the problem).
