I gave up on qemu a long time ago, and switched to Virtualbox for all
my VM needs.

Also, I've used Fedora as my primary OS for 7 or 8 years until just
recently switching to Wheezy, and you'll need more than 512MB of RAM to
install or run a contemporary Fedora release. If you have the RAM, I
suggest allotting 2GB minimum to run GNOME and do anything useful. 4
would be better.
