I have a HD install and need to install QMEU into it but it keeps failing. Here is what I get. I'm doing this by ssh'ing into the DSL Linux system

root@1[root]# apt-get install qemu

Package qemu has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and
never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents
of sources.list
E: Package qemu has no installation candidate

or download qemu manually from other sources
or possibly change your apt repos.

I downloaded the debian package  qemu_0.6.1+20050407-1_i386.deb

when I tried to install it doing dpkg -i it failed

root@box:/etc/apt# dpkg -i qemu_0.6.1+20050407-1_i386.deb

Why use such an old version of Qemu?
Qemu v0.8.2 binary for linux is a simple tarball avaiable from their < site >
