Strictly this is a QEMU question but someone here might be able to 

This command produces error reply "qemu-system-i386: Invalid parameter 'net'".

qemu-system-i386 -drive file=$Sysdev,format=raw \
  -netdev tap,id=n1,ipv4=on,ipv6=off,net=,host= \
  -device ne2k_pci,netdev=n1

Therefore try this.  The intention is qemu host and qemu 
guest  (Note the ambiguity of "host".)

qemu-system-i386 -drive file=$Sysdev,format=raw \
  -netdev user,id=n1,ipv4=on,ipv6=off,net=,host= \
  -device ne2k_pci,netdev=n1

A working guest system is produced.  Good. 

Check whether the interface is created.

ip addr show | grep
ip addr show | grep

No result.  No interface.  (I don't really expect the second to work 
from the host side.)

Has anyone made a network connection with Oberon on QEMU? Ideas?

Thanks,                ... P.
