Qemu network setup.

I have Fedora Core 4 on my computer and I have it networked with another linux (not FC4) computer. To make it simple, I set the IP address of the FC4 computer to and the IP address of the other computer to and added the necessary lines to /etc/hosts on both computers. The 2 computers communicate just fine with NFS. Now, I want to add a qemu virtual machine to the network. I got qemu to run on the FC4 computer but, to do so, I have to leave out the "-net user" option or qemu quits with "Could not get DNS address." Qemu documentation references "user mode network stack" when it mentions the "-net user" option but doesn't say what to do in regards to the error that I am getting. It looks like something simple. But what?

Well, it turns out that I don't need to put qemu into the network to have linux get to its image file(s) after all.

mount -t auto <image file> <mount point> -o loop,offset=XXXXXX
...makes the image file's contents accessible through the linux filesystem, which works just fine for me.
