ok, here's a question: somehting is wrong with my cd -- "error
installing the base system"  If I were on a real, physical computer, I
would ctrl-alt-F2 to a ocnsole, or ctrl-alt-f3 to the error log, and
try to diagnose the problem.  But on qemu ctrl-alt releases the
"grab", so it seems to be impossible to do.  Is there some way to
switch virtual terminals in qemu?

nonetheless, I can already see how cool this is...
