I'm trying that now.

I mentioned the command line in my original post to the thread.

qemu -boot c -cdrom /dev/cdrom -hda hd.img

So it's using 128MB, and my box does indeed have 512MB.

I have had a look in the Debian config.  The only non-standard configure
option is --enable-slirp.  Debian compiles qemu with -Wall -O2 -g
-fno-strict-aliasing.  Not sure what gcc was used, but probably 3.3.
