     11To try out HelenOS, download the latest IA-32 ISO image from the [http://www.helenos.org/download download page]. Install [http://www.nongnu.org/qemu/ QEMU]. In the directory where you downloaded the ISO image run
     12{{{
     13qemu -m 32 -cdrom image.iso
     14}}}
     15
     16You can also use a different emulator. Just make sure it is configured to emulate a Pentium 4 or later CPU or HelenOS won't boot and it will display a red error message.

     34./toolchain.ia32.sh
     35}}}

     38{{{
     39cd ../..
     40make

     43Load preconfigured defaults for the platform you want to build for and select ''Done''. HelenOS will now be built.

     45'''Important note''': If you don't compile using the supported toolchain, your build may well fail.
