I have a related question. I have a (for this purpose, kinda) spare
10ish Gig partition.
I also have qemu & the non-free kernel module installed. Seeing as
this machine (my primary desktop) has a celeron... emulation sucks
(slow) but safe and I can do *My thing*, and nice qemu.

One of my questions is: is any debug info created under qemu of any use?

One other is that hdb(1) is mounted as /home... should I avoid sharing
/home between breezy and dapper if I were to install dapper on

I guess that what I'm really asking is how do *I*... a typical early
adopter with a urge to help... best help you, while not killing my
primary (and only convenient) computer?
