1- so we should have one qemu "chipset emulator" for each winxp installation?
2- is this pbm equivalent to the "move my hd to another pc with different

the mbr

Thank you very much for your explanation, these are very helpful! Do you think 
I should put something about this thread in the wiki? Forums are full of such
