Hi Brett,

For the sound issue - I used the Audio feature in QEMU and it works OK
(XP as a guest, Fedora as a host)..

As for the mepis installation, you just created a 3GB partition.
Indeed it's 0 bytes size, but it grows as you install and write more
stuff. You wouldn't want to allocate 3GB directly by just writing 2GB
stuff inside, would you? :)

As for the nothing-happend issue, it seems that you didn't select to
boot from the CD image (or CD Device) as this is the first thing you
want to do after creating a blank virtual hard drive, so you'll need
to add "-boot d" and with the appropriate -cdrom stuff ..

Hope this helps, I'm not using QEMU under Windows..
