QEMU and networking?
Just got QEMU to work for me somewhat. Still need to get the kqemu to work. Can't I get the qemu os to access the internet with the simulated network adapter?

Course you can, the default network option is '-net user' which simulates a PCI network adapter and has a virtual DHCP server to assign it an address. Unless you have some funky iptables rules it should be able to access the internet fine by default provided the network connection is setup correctly in the guest OS.

Ok, I'll test that. I also found some info about tun which I will test too.

Another issue, my virtual slackware seems to 'boot for the first time' all the time which means it will make the DSA keys for SSH always which consumes pretty much time. Any idea what could be causing that?

Nope, never used Slackware. That would be happening if you're using the -snapshot option for qemu, it writes to a temp file so it won't modify the original image. Probably not but but figured it was worth mentioning.

I'm not using the snapshot option... but I'll try to get past that.
