This is a zip containing qemu-ppc, and a 2gb disk image file with macos
9.2.2 installed. The system folder was modified to allow it to boot from an
unlocked HFS volume. This image has lots of extensions and control panels
included and enabled.  Once you download qemu_easy.zip, extract it, and run
qemu_os9.command (this is just a batch file with arguments)

qemu will now load and boot from the disk image to OS9 desktop.  The disk
image included here is read/write enabled.  I have only tried this on
OS10.11, your success may vary.  MacsBug is included in the root directory,
but is not enabled.
