Question Qemu

I'm looking for a good step-by-step walkthrough for installing Windows XP on Qemu. Does anyone have any links?

By the way- I'm still fairly new with Linux. I need it to be very easy to understand.

I don't think installing WinXP is for the faint of heart (tm).
It might be posible, but for it to be easy, you should wait a couple of months (years)

Maybe you should look into VMware (comercial), that works.

From the linux kernel documentation

you can download the qemu.iso and the qemu directory from
they are using windows and debian imgs, there is readme in the qemu directory not very resourceful but helpful.

good luck

Sorry to burst your bubble, but if you read the README.txt accuratly, is says that he provides (hd)images to run debian-sarge(linux) on linux or on ms-windows.

This is not an image containing a copy of ms-windows.
This would be an extreme copyright violation, and should never be distribute from an universities ftp site.
