Because nobody seems to have done it, I thought I'd do a quick video of how to install Xenix 386 2.3.4 on Qemu 0.15.0 ... The 'real' magic is in the boot statement which hardcodes it to a 3 1/2" high density disk... [fd(60)xenix root=fd(60) swap=ram(0) pipe=ram(1) swplo=0 nswap=1000 ronly]

qemu -L pc-bios -m 16 -drive file=xenix.disk,if=ide,index=0,media=disk,cache=writeback -vnc 127.0.0.1:0 -sdl -fda
n1.vfd -boot a -no-fd-bootchk -monitor telnet:127.0.0.1:4444,server,nowait

And this way I could change disks without jumping away from the console.. And I've flv catted the two boots since Qemu doesn't like to freefloat from floppy boot to hard disk boot.
