Thanks Mr.Yin.

Increasing this parameter helped solved the build problem with LinuxBIOS.

Looks like, it will take quite some time to get everything done as am
stuck again.

After building LinuxBIOS, I decided to download QEMU binary for FC5
and installed it as well. Next, followed the procedure (in QEMU build
tutorial) and created hard disk mage, though am not using FILO.

Now, I did all these compilations and installations as root intending
to run Linux on Linux.

While trying to invoke qemu with the options as in the tutorial, again it fails.


[root at kappiam ~]# qemu -L ~ -hda disk.img -nographic
(qemu) Could not open '/dev/kqemu' - QEMU acceleration layer not activated
qemu: could not load PC bios '/root/bios.bin'


Any ideas ? I feel am doing something wrong here.
