Actually, I found the problem (a bit of debug code I left behind) and
QEMU is now working well :) .

I only just subscribed to the list so ... I haven't seen your patches
yet... Ho hum... duplication of effort I think... I even put in code to
use the if_tap interface, but so far it's untested.

Does the version in CVS offer much more than the 0.5.5 I downloaded and
built from?

And one of the things I am interested in doing is having a working OS/2
on my P4 laptop (OS/2 doesn't install on it) and maybe booting the XP
partition from FreeBSD.

Well - I have most of it compiling on FreeBSD 4.9 already... but I'm
going to try with gcc33 on 4 soon (as soon as the gcc33 port finishes
building maybe)

Thanks anyways
