This version of Qemu seems to be one of the better ones in a LONG LONG time.
Much to my amazement, as I fully expected this to crash much like all the other versions, it actually runs.
qemu-system-i386.exe -m 16 -hda netware312.disk -device ne2k_isa,irq=10,iobase=0x300 -soundhw pcspk -serial none -parallel none -k en-us
I’m just more amazed it works. Now I did try it on my old setup of a NE2000 on 0x300 Interrup 2/9 but I was getting some IRQ issues. So I went ahead and reconfigured Netware for IRQ ‘A’, and set the CLI for 10. Of course I haven’t actually tested networking, this is really a ‘wow it did something’ statement. No doubt I’ll have to build a new GNS3 test bed with this Qemu, and see how Netware performs.
