Smile Installing Debian on Qemu

Hi all,

As usual Debain amazes me again.

I am using Debian Etch and I am using Qemun to create a Debian virtual Machine (I could install WinXP). However when I am installing Debian DVD the PC is hanaging up and is not able to complete the installation.
I am not a pro with Linux and I would like to use the PC just to experment with compling the kernel.

I do not know whats going wrong. Plesase help.

Thanks .

Have you tried virtualbox ? It is gpl, and everything about it "just works" for me so far. It's fantastic. Check out "seamless mode" Your windows apps just hang on the desktop like native kde apps. I had trouble with vmware and sound. And virtualbox was much faster....

I got to thank you for this amazing software. This one not only runs the VM but also doe not put a lot of strain on my processor (got a dual-core). qemu would push the processors up by 100%

Again, thanks a lot man

Why the duplicate (except for the smiley) posts in the same forum?:

If it's an accident you should have edited one to apologise & link to the other.
If it's deliberate, please don't do that any more -- it's against the rules.
Now, you need moderator intervention to fix your mistake.

I am reporting
for closing & requesting it be merged w/ the other as it seems to have the less useful answer & probably the less clear title.
