I use DSL-embedded / qemu on a WinXP SP2 system with Trend Officescan virus checker and Windows firewall and it works fine.
However, in the past I have needed to start qemu 2 or 3 times before it will come to life. This newer version of QEMU seems to be better than the older one in that regard.
Maybe the Dual CPU is throwing things off. Can you turn OFF one of the CPUs in you BIOS and then reboot and try again?
DSL itself does work if I boot from the cd, so I'm wondering more if it is Qemu which doesn't like the dual-CPU setup. Clobbering one CPU might be interesting as a test, but not something I'd want to do typically.
The virus checker is Symantec's corporate offering, though turning that off is the one thing I can't do on the work systems. When I have some free time, I think I'll try Qemu itself with other OS images to see how that works.
