Running linux kernel 0.01 into Qemu

This is an “archeology” subject, but it is very interesting see the first Linux version running on Qemu:

There is a typo on tutorial, the right command to get it running on Qemu is this:

$ qemu  -hdb hd_oldlinux.img  -fda linux-0.01-3.3.img -boot a

This is too fast, maybe because there is nothing on this first Linux version, neither /proc exist.

Next step should be get it running on real hardware.
