+If you have setup a disk in the config file (e.g.
+disk = [ 'file:/tmp/foo,hda,r' ] ), it will loop reading it. If that disk is
+writable (e.g. disk = [ 'file:/tmp/foo,hda,w' ] ), it will write data patterns
+and re-read them.
+If you have setup a network in the config file (e.g. vif = [''] ), it will
+print incoming packets.
+If you have setup a VFB in the config file (e.g. vfb = ['type=sdl'] ), it will
