Is it possible make the backup on the virtual hd without crashing something vital for qemu? Thanks in advance for answers!
Have fun guys, but stay out of trouble,

The stock dsl-embedded-1.1.zip file has the backup already set to hdb, the virtual hard drive, just as prior versions have. Now, 1.1, has a new verision of Qemu, so maybe, if you have changed or hacked your version or possible may have a mixed group of exe which maybe crashing on you. So, far, I have not seen such. And from your other post about not being able to mount hdb, would certainly explain not being able to backup to hdb. I suspect either a bad download or mixiing versions of Qemu exe and support files or incompatible customizations.

Well I tried today to make a backup to hdb (or the virtual hd in qemu) mounted this way: #mount /mnt/sda1/qemu/harddisk /mnt/test -o loop. The backup utility just froze on me and nothing happened. The only thing I have done is a remaster of the KNOPPIX-file and just replaced the original one with the remastered one. I have done this with all the latest releases and it has worked just fine (until now). So the only way I can mount the virtual hd in qemu is as described above. It works but it certainly isn't conveniant to do like this. I hope there is another solution.
