In FreeBSD, you can install QEMU from the ports system.

cd /usr/ports/emulators/qemu
make -DWITH_KQEMU
make install

or as a package

pkg_add -r qemu

Then load kqemu and aio kernel modules:

kldload kqemu
kldload aio

and launch the image you want:

qemu -m 256 -hda olpc-stream-development-7-20060609_1600-ext3.img

allocating 256MB memory to the virtual machine since 'real' XO's have 256MB RAM.
