http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello everyone, I'm David from Toulouse, France and this is my first question on this forum, it's already two years that I'm playing with linux, and almost twenty more others that I use unix at work. My question may seem easy or stupid to some of you, but I found discussions relative to the problem I encounter or close to it. I want to run a linux qemu-virtual machine within a text console. (to be able to see it working across an ssh text link) So, first I create a virtual disk : $ /usr/bin/qemu-img create qemu-dsk.img 2G Then I mount the iso CD (HowTos)
