Hi Alan,

Nice guide, but you don't say when you need to, nor how to, quit QEMU.
I'd pitch it at someone who hasn't used QEMU before, which you did
with the command-line analysis when installing into the disk image.

When you're starting/setting up xvidcap, explain why you disable the
audio, or do so in the introduction (I know this point was in your
earlier post). Maybe there should also be some discussion about
recording an app's sound effects and dubbing in the commentary later?
