where I listed a number of problems with v0.70 (Windows build), some things
that did work right, and some suggestions, I'm going to have to retract the
part where I said freedos seems to work okay, including the mouse.

The mouse driver is still locking things up.  And once it locked up qemu
enough that it didn't want to shut itself down.  I had to tell WinXP to
forcibly shut it down.

And speaking of FreeDOS, somebody in the qemu-user forums is reporting a
problem with write protecting a floppy.  Looks like the write failure isn't
being properly passed to the guest.


Looks like it's not OS specific, but you'll have to ask him for more details.

I think I have to agree to this. Some weeks ago, I asked about a very strange error with changing CDs etc. This problem was solved by setting the correct permissions on /dev/hdc (apparently a udev update had reset them...) . Looks like in this case, the read access error of /dev/hdc wasn't properly handled. Maybe this is related to the write protection error.
