Hi,
I have used qemu with ubuntu 5.10.
It is very slow (qemu not ubuntu). It takes long time to install any OS on it.
It even slower if you want to run any application on it. Sometime I get
urges to take pen and paper and do all the calculations myself in binary.

I've tried about five images so far. The fastest was debian sarge with no X (guis). i ran it with:-
Code:
qemu -net none /path/to/image.img -m 512
dsl.iso (damn small linux) came second for me also with 512mb of ram. Fedora and centos c-r-a-w-l-e-d.
However I may not be comparing like with like here, just my mileage.

I attempted Lindows 4.5..but it was just awful. Gotta find me a DSL disk and try that.
