Part of this position is figuring that out. It is going to take a lot of poking 
and prodding to find out what expectations are not being met. I suspect that 
there are issues with the Mac OS Rom file not being placed into memory 
correctly. That is not the only problem. We have no sound support of Mac OS. 
None of the sound cards that come with QEMU are Mac compatible. Then there is 
the network card issue. Networking doesn't work yet with a Mac OS guest. One 
more thing we need is USB support for Mac OS hosts. So to answer your question, 
what is missing - a lot.
