+Optionally you may use `--curses` to keep your keyboard layout. If need be modprobe kvm_amd, kvm intel and kvm to get kvm support (which is much, much faster).
+
+Note that if you do not have a command named `kvm`, you can try something across the lines of:
+
+ $ qemu-system-i386 --enable-kvm -drive cche=writeback,file=$(echo debian-hurd-*.img) -net user,hostfwd=tcp:127.0.0.1:2222-:22
+
+Or, if your machine does not allow for KVM acceleration, omit `--enable-kvm` from the command.
