With the release of 0.8.4, there is now also an updated dsl-embedded. Some of the fixes in 0.8.4 should make for a better experience with dsl-embedded-0.8.4.

You can also just download the single iso and replace the dsl.iso in the embedded directory with the 0.8.4 renamed to dsl.iso

Don't bother getting QEMU version 6.1 for Microsoft Windows host system (DSL Linux guest OS).

It still has the network corruption bug.

Instead, download the latest "Nightly build" of QEMU.  Anything dated 11/21/2004 or newer contains a fix for the network corruption bug.
