To install PearPC boot knoppix, open up a Konsole window and run these 2 commands.
apt-get install pearpc
then read the documentation on how it's used.. it's very similar to qemu.

swear very loudly....?
Ahhh... Now then...
I should have stated that am running Knoppix LiveCD. So I've just downloaded PearPC 0.40 and I'll see if it'll install (./configure) well with the Knoppix CD. If not I'll have to install Knoppix then.
Also all my partitions are formated in NTFS. I'll see if by changing one to FAT32 maybe qemu might actually work. Oh, I'll also double check the HDDs permissions as well.
I'll report on my finding and then I'll turn to PearPC.

It is running at a pretty decent speed considering knoppix is running under vmware. Knoppix won't boot on my p3 and it is the only OS that I have gotten qemu to work with(using OS X).
I am going to try and find out why knoppix isn't working on my p3 and try it on that.
Today i'm going to test in PearPC and see which runs faster.
BTW, if you want videos of OS X in qemu I will post some.

Another thing that Ai Haibara has told me, is that PearPC doesn't emulate sound.
I will probably include both PearPC and Qemu in the final dvd and have an option to choose either and what accelerator to use. This dvd could be used as a solution for people who have incompatible hardware and want to run OS X aswell.
Things i'm doing at the moment :
Finding an accelerator that works on SSE.
Remastering a knoppix livecd.
Fix the problem with knoppix and my p3 so I can do some proper native testing.
Things left to do :
Strip knoppix of all unneeded apps and leave twm and fluxbox.
Add OS X install DVD (10.4.8)
Write scripts for virtual machine setup/startup.
I hope I get some of these done tomorrow, although I have schoolwork to do.

qvm86 is a kernel module to provide x86 virtualisation capabilities for the qemu emulator. Virtualisation allows "emulated" code to be run natively on the host cpu, using the CPU protection mechanisms to intercept and emulate priveleged events.
we can't port aqua because we don't have the source. unless you mean for us to rewrite it which will never happen.
I looked into a SLAX live cd when I was first looking for liveCDs, but never found a way that it could be loaded into ram.

P.S sorry about not reading into that more, schoolwork is kind of piling up here...

A CPU kernelextension which intercepts SSE2 calls and translates them to SSE / (3dnow!) , much like Semthex has done with SSE3 emulation in the 8.8.1 kernel.
SSE2 has 144 instructions more than SSE which has 70. But most of those SSE2 instructions deal with double precision, and its questionable how much we need them.
The source of qemu might be useful for a list of translations of simd instructions.

I also have it working in vmware..
