Hello everyone.

I've recently made a ISO that you can easily attach to a QEMU guest that will help install the VirtIO and SPICE drivers, similar to ease of use and simplicity of VMWare's Guest Tools ISO.

The git repo is over here: http://bitbucket.org/marcuseaton/qemu-win-guest-tools/

Features include:

-Autodetection of 32-bit or 64-bit OS
-Automatic download of latest VirtIO and SPICE Guest drivers (can optionally be skipped)
-No extra dependencies in the operating system, the ISO is fully self-contained 

There are no extraneous requirements (except for access to the internet to download the newest version of the drivers, if you choose) and I've thoroughly tested this with a Windows 7 guest, but it should work for XP guests (and maybe even older).

Granted I'm no programmer (just a humble system admin) so I eagerly welcome any and all criticism. I've found it quite helpful and I hope you do too, if you have a need for this. 

If this sort of thing isn't welcome here then I sincerely apologize.
