Question After Installing a Fedora Image in QEMU, can you transfer a partition on your HD


I didn't know where exactly to post this question, but here goes...
I'm experimenting with QEMU installing Fedora 8. Is there anyway to take the virtual image file and somehow write that out to an open partition on your hard drive?

If the specs of your virtual disk and partition match that of the physical equivalent then in theory it should be possible. If you want to experiment with the idea I suggest you get a clean HD and read up on the 'dd' command because you'll mess up stuff guaranteed ;-p I'm wondering what could be a valid reason for doing something like this?

Well, I thought since programs like the wubi installer that later on uses another program to take the huge file that is sitting in a windows partition could then be written out to an open partition. But wubi uses ubuntu. I thought Fedora had something similar, but couldn't find it. That's why I tried installing Fedora in QEMU with the hope later on that it could be transferred to a seperate partition on my hard drive. Although I could just install it normally (live cd), I figured since it took so long to install virtually the file could be used outside of the virutal space. No big deal, just curious...
