Using Shinobar's Qemu sfs, (from this thread), this works for me:

Code:
qemu -L /usr/share/qemu -m 256 -cdrom xxx.iso


Where -L sets the path to qemu's bios.bin, -m sets RAM size, and, of course, replace xxx.iso with the real iso's name.

But wot I'm Trying 2 Do is Boot a USB Flash Drive in a Virtu' Machine that has Multiple Puppies & Various Other Linuxs & Bootable iso Tools etc that has been Suggested can be Done w/ Loop back Mounting & Grub 2 ( Both of which I'm Reading about ( Slowly ), Researching & eXperimenting ( & Trying 2 Understand! ) Confused

My Plan is that grub.cfg Mods can be Tested Quicker in a VM than a Real Host, Thanx
