Setting up XP in Qemu with working Networking

I have sucessfully installed XP on qemu on Linux Mandrake 9.2 (yay!).  The only thing I can't get to work is networking with internet access.  I have tried quite a few things and nothing seems to work.  I have followed all instuctins on http://dad-answers.com/qemu, and still can't get it to work.  Here's a link to a snap shot of my connection settings and IE trying to connect to google:

The parameters i use to start qemu are:
qemu -hda hd.img -fda /dev/fd0 -cdrom /dev/cdrom -boot c -user-net

Please let me know if you need any more info to help me solve my problem!

Thanks!

-Jeff

I'm sure networking works OK from the host OS, so... Could you check that you've got a valid DNS for the guest? Perhaps check with "ipconfig /all" on a cmd prompt?

Sorry for the delay, i've been having troubles booting in to linux and it looks like i may have to reinstall it.  I will get back to you as soon as I can get in to linux :)

Well I got it working in Mandrake 10.0, not sure if it required Mandrake 10.0 or just was missing a few files that 10.0 installed by itself.  Thanks for your time!

That's fabulous... Just to "clean up" here, could you contact Community Support (place a 0-point question in that TA) with a link back to this question, so they can close this and refund your points (I'm leaning toward this being PAQ'd rather than deleted... It contains some valuable info (that XP and Mdk 10 works for Qemu _is_ valuable info, at least for now:-).

Cheers
