Booting from an ISO image using qemu

You have an iso image and you want to boot from it without restarting the system, simply use qemu virtual machine as below (-m 512 says qemu will be use 512 Mb of RAM from system):

qemu -boot d -cdrom emu -m 512 -cdrom customcd.iso

qemu is slow when its compared with vmware or similar products, but it is easy to use and small, just use apt and it is ready in a few seconds later.
