Ready-made, downloadable QEMU images with various payloads

People new to LinuxBIOS would surely appreciate ready-made, downloadable QEMU images they can use to test LinuxBIOS without having to modify their hardware. We should provide images with various payloads, and for various architectures (QEMU supports more than just x86).
They'd just download the image, put it in their $HOME, and run something like
qemu -L ~ -hda disk.img -nographic
Yes, there is the QEMU Build Tutorial, but many people are probably not willing to do all those steps just for a quick test. Ready-made QEMU images could lead to more people trying out LinuxBIOS.
