Emulating Windows XP on Linux using QEMU

Quoting the quickstart guide.

Create an virtual Harddrive

qemu-img create -f qcow windowsxp.img 3G

Install Windows XP

qemu -cdrom /dev/cdrom -hda windowsxp.img -m 256 -boot d

This command means to boot from the d drive using 256 megabytes of RAM. The -cdrom option indicates where to find the device.

Networking is configured by default and Windows XP should configure itself with DHCP.
