Hi Frederic,

Thank you for the input. I will add this information to the Doyen webpage.

For those insterested in trying with (free software) qemu, the
following commands worked for me (Debian sarge):

$ wget -c
$ qemu -user-net -m 256 -cdrom doyen-42206.iso -boot d

I take the opportunity to point at new Debian based live-CD mastering
