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
show a mouse with which you can draw color squares.
If you have compiled it with TCP/IP support, it will run a daytime server on
TCP port 13.
