Intel Dual-Core Pentium something. I don't know exactly. Looking at
the output of /etc/proc/cpuinfo on Linux I see the following:

Enabling PAE/NX and I/O APIC didn't help. I can't find settings for
VT-X/AMD-V or Nested Paging.

I don't think we need to spend more time on this. I got QEMU working,
so let's see if I can manage with that. Thank you for your help.

Intolerant people should be shot.
