OK, I've used the -drive option and specified if=ide.  Still the installation 
process yields a system where the boot loader begins the first sector but 
fails before or in the second.

The document 
has the sentence, 
"Note that the diskette image file, filled to the brim, exceeds the capacity of 
a high capacity diskette."

Given the command
sudo qemu-system-i386 -boot a -fda DisketteImage ... 
where DisketteImage is larger than an ordinary HD diskette image, 
will that be problematic for qemu?

Thanks,                            ... Peter E.
