Ive had success running AMIthlon inside QEMU only to the point of preparing partitions and filesystems...
However...this is a big deal-breaker here...
YOU HAVE NO ACCESS BEYOND THE INITIAL AMITHLON RAMDISK WORKBENCH
thats right... as soon as the HDD is prepared I can not transfer anything to it
so my OS3.5 and OS3.9 CD's are useless (even imaging them and trying that way also failed)
