None of these problems have anything to do with qemu.  They are problems with 
your root FS. Qemu works exactly the same way as a real Arm machine.

The arm_test image on the qemu website is a minimal cut-down test/demo system. 
It is not not intended to be a full general purpose linux system. Sounds like 
you need to get yourself a proper linux install. The Debian installers work 
pretty much out the box.

If you already are using a different linux distro, you need to contact whoever 
supplied it.
