I played around with the cloop driver, and it sure feels a little bit
faster. I did two things for that:

1) I added the line

        mountit /dev/hda /KNOPPIX "-o ro" && FOUND_KNOPPIX=yes

at the end of the "mount_knoppix" function in /linuxrc (in minirt24.gz,
which is just a gzipped ext2 image).

2) I started (cloop patched) qemu like

        qemu -kernel /cdrom/boot/isolinux/linux24 \
          -initrd minirt24_qemu.gz \
          -append "fromhd=/dev/null" \
          -hda /cdrom/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX

the "fromhd=/dev/null" is important so that KNOPPIX does not complain too

BTW: with Knoppix I did not have the network problems as with Windows
after loadvm'ing. I guess that Windows 98 is too dumb to REDISCOVER the
DHCP address...
