Networking with QEMU 0.9.1? (Emulation)

Networking with QEMU in a Windows host is relatively easy I think. IIRC, after installing the Win32 tap driver, making some small adjustments to the network, and then installing Network Client for DOS (with NDIS2PKT converter; I didn't use the packet driver directly), both Internet and LAN access (TCP/IP over DHCP) should work fine in a QEMU DOS session. I don't really remember some of the details now (which was done about 2 years ago), but I hope it will help to some extent.

The real challenge is how to get networking with QEMU to work in a DOS host (i.e. when running QEMU under HX in DOS). Although I have tried to find a DOS tap driver, there does not seem to exist one. Any suggestions are welcome.
