Default qemu + guest os winxp - very slow..

Hi, folks!

Today I've installed qemu, cause I'm really tired from dual booting FreeBSD/WinXP. First I've installed qemu-devel from ports with kqemu-kmod-devel, then installed WinXP successfully but the performance is very poor. I have aio, if_bridge, if_tap and kqemu loaded.

I've tried running qemu with -vnc :1 option, but the performance is even slower.

After that I decided to give qemu (no devel) a chance. I think it works a little better than qemu-devel, but still it uses almost 99-100% of my CPU (AMD Athlon ~ 2.2 Ghz)

My question is how to reduce that CPU usage so I can get a better performance? Now I realize that I can't switch to FreeBSD completely cause I still need some win apps like AutoCAD.

Thanks everyone!
