qemu on an Eee PC

Yes, an Eee PC can run 10 operating systems in parallel!

I installed qemu 0.11.1 with kqemu 1.4.0 on my Eee PC 900 (1Ghz/1GB running Linux), using an external hard-disk for storage.  I was able to get the following operating systems running with very little difficulty:

OpenBSD NetBSD FreeBSD DragonFlyBSD Debian GNU/Linux Windows XP Mac OS X Haiku

Eee PC with qemu running 10 operating systems

I am able to provide a torrent containing all of the free OS images, with the shell scripts I wrote.  This may be useful to other people who would like to test the portability of their programs.

    it’s really impressive that you were able to run that many os on an eee pc. i’ve heard of qemu before but i don’t know how to use it. it would be nice if you can point me to some online resources to perhaps a beginners guide to qemu.
