I run Qemu for a long time in my FreeBSD 6.0-REL laptop to fire
up, if I need to do, a XP box or to give talks about the installation
of a FreeBSD just doing this in a Qemu virtual machine. Of course
you can connect from the underlaying host system or from anywhere
else, for example with SSH, to the guest system in Qemu, properly
routing setup must done of course before.
