Hi all

I am sorry if this if offtopic here, if it is, please point me to the correct 
location. (did not find a qemu-users list or something).

I am writing a new installation for linux distro, and I would like to test it 
on qemu before I do it on real HW. 

I found some nice utilities to make a HD image from a a dir, and another one 
for mounting the image on the host, however they are not enough. I need a way 
to partition the HD image, and decide which partition will be (ext3 or swap 
for example), and most importat: I need to install from the host a boot 
loader on the HD image.

The last one is really tricky since last time I tried, lilo did not want to 
use a file, but it insisted on a real device. I did not try grub yet.

As anyone tried such things? how can I do this?
