The section is talking about qemu, but as a newbie having installed the
qemu package (apt says successfully) the "kvm" command still will not
work.  It needs the qemu-kvm package specifically.

And most of the URLs mentioned are outdated, more updated ones seem to
be listed inside the README.

Samuel seems to only have a Hurd repo in his directory now. Not the
built images.

The kvm command seemed to work fine once I moved to other documentation
about KVM instead of qemu had me uninstall qemu and install the qemu-kvm
