well, I was using that actually, but I just wanted to doublecheck..
I created a blank image file, and when I run that, I get

mybox:~/qemu_images root# /opt/local/bin/qemu win2k.img -cdrom /dev/disk1s0 -boot d
/dev/disk1s0: Device busy
qemu: could not open hard disk image '/dev/disk1s0
mybox:~/qemu_images root#

thats after I ejected, re-inserted the win2k cdrom. Im not sure why its busy,
but Im sure that /dev/disk1s0 is the CDROM on OSX.

I tried booting qnx 6.2.1 with -cdrom /dev/disk1 on ibook (got device name out of system profiler) and cdrom mounted in finder. Could not access cd0 from qnx, but unmounting the cdrom drive by the finder did not eject it also!! So i guess it was used by qnx now. All of your variants with -cdrom /dev/disk xy resulted in "could not open hard disk image....", but booting with /dev/disk1 worked til "could not read boot disk" by bios-screen. I cannot try this with a bootable cd, because i justed moved and cannot find my w98 and w2k cds. But i will have a look and post....

a friend just turned me onto the qemu and I have it installed on my powerbook running OSX. Ive run the sample linux and dos images, but how would I go about
installing win2k from CD?

Create a disk image, e.g. w2k.img, then boot Windows 2k from the
CD, e.g.:
        qemu w2k.img -cdrom /dev/cdrom -boot d
I don't know what the name of the OS X CD-ROM device is; the
above assumes /dev/cdrom.

After install finishes, you should be able to boot directly from
the disk image, e.g.
        qemu w2k.img
