Allowing switching of floppies in KVM
OK, so I am trying to install an old game on my DOS VM, during the install I need to take out a floppy in drive A: and put in the next floppy in the same slot. Bad news: I have to run it all off .img's and .iso's.

Is there any way to switch the floppy ISO whie the VM is running?

Using KVM/QEMU btw.

Thanks in advanced.

This would probably be better off in the Virtualisation forum imho.
If you want, you can ask the Mods to move it via the Report button.

I know in qemu you use a hot key to get to the qemu console/monitor. I forget the command but it should be online and available in qemu. I just can't find it. Maybe help from monitor will show it. It was based in French to consider how words are used too.

Yep, Control-Alt-Shift-2 accesses the monitor; floppy0 is the name of the device, and you do 'change floppy0 [file]' to change it, thank you.
