With certain restrictions (which usually don't play any role when just
a normal ELDK rebuild is needed) you don't even need to run Qemu;
unpack the RH-7.3 build environment in a directory on your host, and
chroot into it. If you are running on a 64 bit machine, run it under
linux32, i. e. try something like this:

	$ sudo linux32 /usr/sbin/chroot /work/eldk_build
