It should work for this session. But keep in mind that you are using a livecd read-only filesystem, so your new password will be saved to the RAMdisk. When you reboot, your RAMdisk is wiped and the password change is lost. So you need to use the DSL backup/restore process in order to keep your user settings.

QEMU is a tiny virtual computer and this virtual computer does not have access to your "real" hardware.

You can Share your C: drive and then use the smbclient program to transfer files between DSL and your network share.
