found the answer here:

You need to access the "qemu monitor" using ctrl-alt-2 (not f2, 2).  I
kept reading that wrong in the manual... the monitor is a very cool
tool, among other things it can send a keystroke to the
simulation thus:
sendkey ctrl-alt-f2

wicked cool.  now I'm going to figure out how to install kqemu to make
things a bit faster, and then I'm off to try out ReactOS & install
those games my kids want to play!  how utterly cool!


man is this ever cool!  hard to believe it Just Works so easily.,  I
feel omnipotent!  THis makes me really
